Time for Oysters in Swansboro


I don't think we could have ordered better weather for this weekend's Oyster Roast and Pig Out at the Swansboro Rotary Civic Center Saturday, March 19 from 5-8 PM.

The tickets are $45 at the door and $40 dollars if you buy from a Rotary Club member before the event.  There is a great slide show set to music at the Rotary Club link, but I also have my own slide collection taken at the 2007 event.  It is not an easy event to photograph since taking pictures means taking time out from shucking oysters. I also wrote up the 2008 Oyster Roast.

There is plenty of food at the event besides oysters, but the event is really for oyster lovers.  With a room filled with tables for eating oysters, it is hard to deny the focus on oysters.
