Crab Pot Christmas Trees
To celebrate its heritage, the working fishing village of Morro Bay built its first crab pot holiday tree from local buoys, crab pots and fishing gear last year in Tidelands Park on the Embarcadero. It was such a hit, this year the city will again light its homemade creation in honor of the local fishing community, and decided to import and additional 14 crab pot trees from a Coastal North Carolina crab trap maker and place them all over town.
"Our fishing community works so hard throughout the year. This is such a great way to celebrate our maritime heritage at the holidays," says Jennifer Little, Morro Bay Tourism Manager. "The Central Coast Fisheries for Women coordinated the whole thing, and we are the lucky ones who get to promote how wonderful our local seafood and fishing families are."
