Little Woodrow’s hermit crab races are a highly entertaining and interactive way to kick off the weekend. Every race features 10 crabs, each with its own personality and name such as Shell Shocked, Lenny Crabitz, Sir Crabs A Lot, and more.

The crabs are placed in a bottomless bucket in the center of the ring, and the bucket is lifted to start the race. The first crab to reach the outside of the circle wins. There are three rounds of races with multiple heats in each. A crab has to win twice in order to become the winner of a round. The races start at 8:45 pm, 9:45 pm and 10:45 pm. Crabs are kept right on top of the bar, so attendees can get a good look at the athletes before the races begin.

To participate, guests pick the card with the name and number of the crab up to 40 minutes before the race. If a guest's selected card features the winning crab, they will receive Crab Cash. Winners can select prizes to purchase with Crab Cash. As the official beer sponsor of this event, beers from 8th Wonder Brewery will be on special each week.
