The second annual Crab Cake Cook-off will be this Saturday, July 29, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Marine Street Grill, next to Harry’s Bar, 306 Marine Street in Carrabelle.

Guests will be able to sample some yummy crab cake bites from several talented competitors and cast their vote for which crab cake will be named the greatest in Carrabelle and perhaps the Forgotten Coast! Last year’s winner, Sid Omie, will be defending her title as crab cake champion.

Attendees may purchase a ticket for just $7 which allows them to taste and judge all the crab cake entries. This year's event has been kicked up a notch with the inclusion of some amazing music. "Slim Fatz" will be playing some cool blues sounds during the event. You may have caught his gritty Delta blues at “Blues in the Lot” in Apalachicola or other venues.

In addition to great food and amazing music, this event will also feature wonderful door prizes and silent auction items too.

Everyone is invited to this fun food-filled event to benefit the Crooked River Lighthouse and efforts to rebuild the playground pirate ship "Carrabella.”
