The Razor Clam Festival and Seafood Extravaganza is Friday through Sunday at the Ocean Shores Convention Center, and is hosted by the Quinault Beach Resort and Casino.

Activities include Kids Corner, local and regional chefs, clam chowder competition, vendors and food demonstrations, and a clam gun decoration contest.

Coastal razor clam digging during fall, winter and spring is a highly popular recreational activity that lures more than half-a-million diggers to beaches who’ve averaged millions of clams dug annually.

Hours are: Friday, noon to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cost is $3 or $5 for all three days, and kids under age 12 are free. For more information, go to http://www.graysharbortalk.com/2017/03/14/ocean-shores-razor-clam-festival/.
