Many Braved the Heat for Crisfield Crab and Clam Bake
CRISFIELD, Md.- Despite the hot temperatures Wednesday, many ventured out into the heat for the 36th J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake in Crisfield.
Many were equipped with towels, hats, sun block, water, and fans to beat the heat and some sat in the shade of tents.
Terry Pehan said it was not too hot out.
"It was not a bad day today really. We've had hotter days," Pehan said. "We got a nice breeze. It's blowing away from the cookers so everybody's doing really well. I think it's going to be a great crowd today for the crab and clam bake."
Doug Lewis of Somerset County Emergency Service said the main health concern for the event was heat-related issues.
"We make sure everyone's OK and [we] just keep emphasizing...drink plenty of water and stay hydrated because [with] today's temperatures you will succumb to the temperature if you're not careful," he said.
The event was held from noon-4 p.m. at Somers Cove Marina. For $40, there was all you can eat menu. The annual event also doubles as a political function with many politicians from across the state of Maryland attending.
