The annual Low Country Boil fundraiser is scheduled for Thursday, September 18 at 6 p.m. in the Stokes Activity Barn at Landmark Park.
A “Low Country Boil” is a tradition along the coastal regions of South Carolina and Georgia. The one-pot dish includes shrimp, corn on the cob, sausage, potatoes, and onions, plus the chef’s own twist on the dish. After the cooking is done, the pot is drained and the mixture is spread on tables and served out of wheelbarrows for a laid-back feast. This meal may have originated in the salt marshes, but is a welcome celebration anywhere. Each year, the “Low Country Boil” is one of Landmark Park’s most popular fundraisers. There will be a silent auction and live music.
Kids are welcome and will have a chance to explore “The Barnyard” playground and go on a horse-drawn wagon ride. Hot dogs will be provided.
Tickets are $50 per person $5 for kids. A limited amount of reserved tables of eight are also available for $500. Tickets must be purchased in advance and are available at the park. Call 334-794-3452 to reserve yours. Dress is casual.
