The largest lobster and seafood festival in the midwest, the GALF makes its Detroit debut after a successful five-year run in Chicago. Live lobster will be flown fresh from the East Coast and will be stuffed in everything from rolls, fries, and tacos, with a “lobster meal” option for those looking for a full-on fill-up. In addition to music and activities, the event will also feature a mess of “land food” and an array of desserts to please less adventurous appetites.
