What is going on?
Enjoying fresh, roasted oysters right out of the May River. The famous, sweet, smaller, oysters are slurp worthy. The smell of the wood fire, the beauty of a sunset on the May River, sitting around the bonfire is anxiously awaited every year.
For those folks who don't eat oysters - I have NO idea what that's about - there are also the FAMOUS Rotary hand cut french fries, as well as brats and hot dogs.
Where can you get tickets?
You can buy them in advance at The Bluffton Oyster Factory, Heuser Hardware, or directly online through the Bluffton Rotary. But no worries, if you don't get them beforehand, you're welcome to buy them at the gate.
Where does the money go?
The Bluffton Rotary Club, founded in 1988, continues the Rotarian motto of "Service above Self" and is highly involved in the Bluffton area contributing to many charities. Just a few are; Bluffton Community Center at Oscar Frazier Park, Happy Feet, scholarships, international water projects, relief funds, Christmas gifts for less fortunate families, the Bluffton Village Festival, and so many more!
Hints to enjoy the Oyster Roast?
1. Though not necessary - the Bluffton Oyster Factory always provides them - it's a lowcountry standard to have your own oyster knife.
2. Be polite, let new oyster eater lovers in and don't just hog the entire table - believe me, there are plenty of oysters to go around!
3. Bring cash - always easier and that way if you have a family member who really is not a fan of the oysters, they can get hot dogs, brats and fries.
4. Bring your ID - they will be selling beer so be prepared.
5. Bring a chair to sit on. There's always great entertainment and it's so much fun to sit by the roaring fire and share why the lowcountry is the best place to live!
Doesn't this sound like a great thing to do? Wouldn't you LOVE to live in a community that has these kinds of events?
