Yum!! Lima Beans!! What? You don’t think so? Come to the Lima Bean Festival, Saturday, October 6, where this lovely and lowly legume gets to be the center of our celebration. You will be amazed at the way the lima bean can be rendered, regaled, represented, respected and rejected. Wait! ? Not rejected!!! Now in its thirty-third year, our Lima Bean Festival is the largest in the country and perhaps the world.. Held in the Lima Bean Capital, West Cape May, New Jersey, this quirky celebration of a bean that has dubious distinction really is a fun time in a borough that preserves its character as ‘small town America’ where residents really do know and care about each other. And they welcome all who come to visit.
