A GIANT lobster called Larry is crawling its way to Rhyl.

The huge inflatable crustacean will take centre stage during the town’s second Seafest.

The sea-themed festival - on Monday, May 28 between 11am and 4pm on Rhyl High Street - will also feature sand sculpture workshops, face painting and live music. People will be able to get up and close to the lobster and snap selfies with him.

As well as the marine fest, Rhyl Town Council will also host live music on the high street for St David’s Day and stilt-walking bunnies on Easter Monday.

Cllr Alan James, mayor of Rhyl, said: “There is something happening in Rhyl in most months this year. The town council supports large show-stopper events, but also runs its own community events programme, now in its third year.

“Each time, we set out to bring something new and 2018 is no different with free activities and amazing experiences planned.

“A giant, moving lobster, our nod to the Visit Wales Year of the Sea theme, is set to be a selfie show-stopper. Local bands and musicians will also be showcasing their talents.

“We look forward to another action-packed year.”

A lot of the events will take place on the high street, with the aim of driving up footfall.

The events scheduled are as follows:

St David’s Day - Thursday, March from 10am until 12 on Rhyl High Street. The morning will feature live music from Ghostbuskers TAPE Community Music and Film
