JDRF/FARE Crab Race
August 25, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
On Saturday August 25th 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! We start selling crabs August 1st!
If you purchase your crab between August 18th - August 25th (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 2019 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.
Crabs can be bought with CASH or CREDIT CARD. If you purchase with a credit card, it will be an additional $1 convenience charge.
We will begin Twilight at 2pm for those who have the Crab Race Twilight Pass.
