August 26, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

On Saturday August 26th (raindate August 27th) at 5:00pm, artificial plastic crabs will be released from Patriot’s Plunge into the Revolutionary River at Breakwater Beach in a race to benefit Juvenile Diabetes and Food Allergy Research Education.
You can purchase your “crab” for only $5 in the waterpark any day we are open!

Each donation, IF PURCHASED PRIOR TO AUGUST 19th, receives a Twilight Admission for the day of the crab race.
If you purchase your crab between August 19th – August 26th (noon), you will be entered to win prizes but will not receive admission to watch the race.

Winning crab gets $100 and a 10 All-Day Passes to Breakwater Beach for the 2018 season. LOTS of other prizes will be awarded too.
You can purchase your crab at Breakwater Beach Waterpark. All proceeds from the event go directly to JDRF and FARE in hopes of finding a cure for these diseases.
We will stop selling crabs at 12 Noon on the day of the Crab race.
Don’t forget – you can still make the donation for the crab entry and do not need to be present at the event to win.
If you have a Crab Race Twilight Admission that you received with your donation you can upgrade to an all-day admission for the day of the Crab Race if you would like.
Bring your Twilight Admission SURF card to the Admission Windows anytime of the day tomorrow (10am-3pm) and can upgrade to an all-day admission for $20!
Only valid day of the race – August 26th.
If you wish to just come for twilight, we will begin Twilight at 2pm for those who have the Crab Race Twilight Pass.
