Running of the lobsters

Tyler Stilp, 16, of Aiken, cheers on her lobster, Cocktail IV, in downtown Aiken. Friday marked the 27th annual Lobster Race as thousands turned out to enjoy games, rides, music, food and the crowning event. Lobsters were trained to compete in drag race-style pens. The first to cross the line won. A total of 14 heats in five lanes were performed. After the races, the crustaceans were sent back into the wild.   Corey Perrine/Staff
