Coconut Grove Seafood Festival is Sunday
One skydiver held a flag, one held the first batch of stone crabs of the season and the third had a camera to capture all the action. And then there were a few of us down below watching this whole oddity take place.
Yellow smoke filled the park today as the stone crabs landed.
This is just a taste of Sunday's goodies.
They flew them in, so they get to taste the first batch.
