PHOTO: Crab Feed returns in-person at fairgrounds

Guests line up for the annual Crab Feed dinner at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds. After operating as a drive-thru due to the pandemic, Saturday marked the first in-person sit-down dinner, combined with a silent and live auction, in two years. Auctioneer and former Police Chief Terry Medina was joined by Fair Board members and others at the festive evening that raises funds for the Fairgrounds Foundation. Scores of volunteers and sponsors pitched in to put the event on as chefs Ken Schwann and Matt Ryan were joined by  Loretta Estrada, Jody Belgard and Sue King in the kitchen. Jeannie Kegebein, volunteer executive director of the Foundation, headed up the evening as around 15 youths from the Junior Livestock Committee assisted with serving and cleanup.
