Rockport raising money to bring back the Big Blue Crab

Rockport’s Big Blue Crab that welcomes visitors at the beach entrance was destroyed during Hurricane Harvey. A year later, a painting of a blue crab hangs, and the community is raising money in hopes of building a new Big Blue Crab.

The Crab made its first appearance in town in 1957. Withstanding Hurricane Celia in 1970, it was taken down six years later because of deterioration.
