All joking aside, the annual East Hampton Town Trustee's Largest Clam Contest, happening Sunday at noon, is a fierce competition to see who can dig up the largest clams from East Hampton waters.
Prizes are awarded to an adult and child who harvest the largest clam from each harbor. The largest clam from all the harbors will be awarded a plaque and prize as well.
Homemade clam chowder chefs will also vie for a prize. There will also be a raw bar and light refreshments while the judging begins.The contest takes place at the East Hampton Town Trustees' headquarters on Bluff Road in Amagansett.
