Schooners Lobster Festival & Tournament
Schooners – the Last Local Beach Clubs’ Lobster Festival and Tournament in Panama City Beach, is recognized as the biggest lobster festival and tournament in the South East. The fun kicks off with delicious lobster specials on the menu and a massive Lobster themed sand sculpture down on the beach. Divers from all over the United States compete for thousands of dollars in cash and prizes. It’s no easy feat hunting for Spiny and Shovel nose lobsters and it’s always such a thrill to see the divers race up the beach with their catch and watch the lobsters being weighed in. If you’re feeling brave enough you can even cuddle up to one of these spiny crustaceans! The Sand sculpting competition is a lot of fun to participate in and also to watch as the beach is transformed into a gallery of creative sand sculptures. Inside Schooners the fun continues with great live entertainment on the main stage and yummy lobster specials on the menu. The beach stage entertains with a DJ, bands, fun and games for the kids and grown-ups and even a dance floor in the sand! Of course everyone’s favorite is the delicious lobster feast on the beach, serving up the most delicious lobster served every which way you could possibly imagine. It’s what everyone has been waiting for all summer long! The event also has nightly chance drawings, a lobster Auction, diver awards and a Grand Prize Drawing on Sunday with proceeds from the drawings benefiting local charities!

They call this place "The Last Local Beach Club," because it is one of the last holdouts for the classic beach style... with danceworn wood floors and tin roof... a bar perched out right on the Gulf. The bands start early and by sunset, the dance floor is packed. Every sunset, someone from the crowd lights the fuse on the old cannon and everyone counts down to "blast off" just as the sun dips below the horizon. Schooners keeps the prices low, the beer ice cold and the seafood fresh. Schooners chefs challenge the finest in the country. Voted "Best Place for Live Music" and "Best Place to Take Friends from Out of Town!" Live music daily. Web site has great live cams and popular local bulletin board. If you're looking for the perfect souvenir of your trip to PC Beach, the "Last Local Beach Club" has it available on line!
