The rest of the events are from 12:00-5:00 at Riverfront Park with judging of contestants’ oyster dishes, children’s activities and live blues music by the Eric Culberson Band. Several types of seafood will be offered for sale such as fried, baked, and raw oysters, oyster stew, smoked mullet, and fresh shrimp.
