Lobster, corn on the cob and community drew hundreds to the Southold and Greenport Rotary Clubs’ 28th annual Lobsterfest at Founder’s Landing Saturday.

One of the North Fork’s most beloved summertime traditions, the event raises money for a variety of projects that benefit both communities.

Guests get a choice of lobster or steak with sides of steamed mussels, baked potato, corn on the cob, cole slaw and watermelon. And there’s hamburgers and hot dogs for children.
