Crisfield Readies for the 36th Annual Crab and Clam Bake

Jul 16, 2012

Crisfield is gearing up for the 36th annual Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake this Wednesday.

And it’s expected to serve up not only the traditional Eastern Shore foods but a bit of Maryland politics.

The Crisfield Chamber of Commerce says it expects an average size crowd but it is not known how many politicians will show up during this presidential year.

Last year crowds spotted those like Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, Senator Ben Cardin and Comptroller Peter Franchot.

So far this year Valerie Howard director of the Chamber told the Salisbury Daily Times that lobbyist Bruce Bereano and Frederick Republican Blaine Young who is considering running for Governor in 2014 have paid for tents at the Crab and Clam Bake.

Danny Thompson co-chair of the event told the paper that he also expects Lt. Governor Anthony Brown to attend.

Also expect Somerset Republicans to be on hand.

Invitations were sent to the President and Vice President but both declined.
