The Long Beach Razor Clam Festival highlights the final days of a dig on the Washington Coast.
The festival is Saturday and Sunday and will feature a chowder taste-off, the world’s largest fry pan clam fritter cook-off, and other festivities. For more information on the festival, go to longbeachrazorclamfestival.com.
Saturday also is coastal cleanup day organized by coastsavers.org.
This week’s razor clam dig at Twin Harbors and Long Beach expands today to Mocrocks. Copalis opens for clamming on Saturday morning. All beaches close for clamming after Sunday.
Low tides are scheduled for 9:26 a.m. today, 10:14 a.m. Saturday and 11:06 a.m. Sunday.
“This year’s season is nearing the end, but we’re not there yet,” said Dan Ayres, state Department of Fish and Wildlife’s coastal shellfish manager. “We hope to offer more digging days in May.”
