Oyster Roast & Shrimp Steam

I know this is a little early to be promoting an event that will take place at the end of next week, but we're going to be taking a short break from the blog during the holiday season (more about that in a couple of days), and I wanted all of our readers to know about the 5th Annual OWWA (Ocracoke Working Watermen's Association) Oyster Roast & Shrimp Steam.

The event will take place Thursday, December 30, from 2-5 p.m. at the Fish House parking lot. Van O'Neal's Fish Stew will be served as well...and dessert and hot cider will be available just down the road at the Watermen's Exhibit out on Jack's Dock.

If you will be on the island next week this is a feast not to be missed! Makeshift tables will be piled high with freshly steamed oysters as residents and visitors open all they can eat (splashed with a little hot sauce and laid on saltines). They're "good some!"

  1. We'll be there with bells and whistles! Our first ever, but certainly not our last! It sounds fabulous.

    Please take photos of the folks enjoying the "good eats" and fun fellowship so we mainlanders can at least get a "feel" for such a festive event which is pure Ocracoke!
