One of the most photographed attractions in New Brunswick, i.e. Shediac’s Giant Lobster, is ageing gracefully, even very gracefully, and we plan to celebrate its 25th anniversary in style this year (2015). This work of art measuring 11 metres long, 5 metres in width, 5 metres high and weighing nearly 90 tons saw the light of day thanks to an initiative launched by the Shediac Rotary Club. The Town and the Rotary Club will therefore work together to mark the quarter century of existence of this work of art sculpted by the artist Winston Bronnum. For more information on the festivities marking the 25th anniversary, please visit the Town of Shediac’s website.

This is a wonderful landmark in Shediac but hard to have your picture taken with it due to its popularity with tourists. Try to get there in the early morning before the crowds hit!!

Shediac is the home of a major lobster industry. To honor it, there is a statue of a giant lobster in the middle of town. It is worth 5 minutes of our time and is a great photo opportunity.

That if you drive by you need to stop to take a picture. I wouldnt go out of your way to see it unless you have a thing for lobsters. But it is definitely a fun photo opp.

Great light for photos in the late afternoon/early evening. Fewer crowds too. Kids will love climbing on it!

I love the over-sized statues you can see all over the country. This one was particularly impressive and kids really enjoyed climbing all over it. I had even known about this one before we hit town. Definitely worth a quick stop.

Anytime you see the worlds largest, isn't is mandatory you have to stop and check it out. 10 minute stop for pictures and back on the highway. Although they did have some quaint shops and bathrooms if you need them

If you look on a Google map, there is a Shediac tourist information center right close by the Giant Lobster Park, and I think they could help you find the name you want for the Gift shop. Hope that helps.
