Fall is upon us; bringing cooler weather, shorter days, changing colors and oysters!!
Oyster season runs October 15th – March 31st and to kick things off, The 33rd Annual NC Oyster Festival starts just next week on October 19th. This festival is put on by the Brunswick County Chamber of Commerce and held in Ocean Isle Beach between 2nd and 3rd streets, beside the Museum of Coastal Carolina. With tons of things for both kids and adults to enjoy, this festival is a great draw for the area. Live music will start Saturday morning at 10am, and last throughout both days. Oyster shucking, amateur and professional, are on at 1pm Saturday. Great food and oyster stew are available both days. The website for the event says “The 33rd Annual North Carolina Oyster Festival will feature live entertainment, arts and crafts vendors, festival food, a road race, kid's area, North Carolina Oyster Shucking Championships and an Oyster Stew Cook-off!”
