KING CITY — King City Rotary Club’s 2020 Crab Feed is tentatively set to take place on Nov. 20, with slight adjustments due to Covid-19 health concerns.
The date would put the annual crab feed on the Friday before Thanksgiving.
Oscar Avalos, president of King City Rotary, made the announcement during the club’s Sept. 9 meeting.
“It will not be an all-you-can-eat crab feed,” Avalos said about the adjustments to the way this year’s crab feed will work. “It will be a drive-up. Your ticket would have ‘X’ amount of pounds of crab. You would drive into the (Salinas Valley) Fairgrounds, we would see how many tickets you have.”
To reduce contact and the potential for spreading Covid-19, Avalos said the event staff might place markers on vehicle windshields as to how many pounds of crab a person purchased tickets for when they show up to the event. Then, a person would drive through and other staff would load the noted amount of crab into their trunk based on their ticket amount.
“It would be drive into the fair and drive out,” Avalos said. “So there would be very minimal contact, if any at all.”
Avalos said the club needs to confirm the date with the Salinas Valley Fairgrounds, but that plans were set for the late November event.
In addition to the crab feed, Avalos said the club is looking into another community-wide event, and commented on plans in the works for a drive-in movie night to be hosted somewhere in town.
