Swansboro Rotary Club 40th Annual Oyster Roast & Pig Out

For those folks who want to keep the party going throughout the evening, the Swansboro Rotary Club is cookin’ up quite the festival of their own. The 40th Annual Oyster Roast & Pig Out will start up around 5:00 PM, although some folks do gather ’round before to try and make their way to the front of the line. The cost to enter is $60 at the door, or $50 if you buy a ticket before. Rotary members have tickets available for purchase, and they can be found at participating local businesses. A ticket to the event includes all the oysters you can eat, plenty of barbeque, fried fish and sides, plus free beer to wash it all down. Chances are they’ll have your favorite college basketball team on the big screen and the band will play a few tunes you know. There’s always a good crowd so have fun & be safe getting home!
