Lamberts Bay 'Kreef Fees' cancelled

The Lambert's Bay Kreeffees organisers have decided to cancel their annual festival as the West Coast rock lobster remains listed as an endangered.

The festival is one the town's biggest money-spinners and celebrates the consumption of the iconic local lobster (kreef).

Festival organisers decided that they could not responsibly promote an event centered on the consumption of kreef.

Lambertsbaai Fees Chairperson Joos Engelbrecht says it was a tough decision to make, considering what a draw card kreef is.

In light of the circumstances, there was no other choice.

Organisers are now working on a market day selling fresh produce which will replace the festival on 18 March.
