Apalachicola is known for hosting great events, and this weekend’s annual Apalachicola Oyster Cook-Off is one of them. The event features a silent auction, oysters galore, shrimp, smoked mullet, hot dogs, hamburgers, local beer, live music, kids’ activities, dancing performances and a 5K run. Enter your best recipe and be a contestant in the oyster cook-off or just come out and enjoy a day of wonderful food, refreshments and music.
The event is held downtown on Water Street at Riverfront Park.The weather is going to be fabulous, with a high in the seventies. And if all that isn’t enough to entice you, you can feel good knowing that all proceeds go directly towards paying for the brand new fire truck they were able to purchase a few years ago, due to this fundraising event.
