CRUSH FRIDAYS ON C-PIER DOWN AT THE OYSTER FARM MARINA

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018

DSC_1896When it’s Friday and you’re feeling really, really Friday-ish, completely ready to kick off the shoes and let down the hair, try heading over to the Oyster Farm Marina on King’s Creek in Cape Charles. Because from 4 to 9pm on summer and fall Fridays, the best band-beer-boat ambience on the Eastern Shore can be found out on C- Pier at the Oyster Farm Marina. Sort of an Ahoy Matey, Hail Guys and Gals Well Met, Challenge You To A Game of Cornhole, TGIF The Shore Way kind of thing ! Plus steamed clams, oysters, shrimp and more ! Ride your bike, take your golf cart or, if needs must, your car. Just be prepared to have a whale of a good time. Because that’s what it’s all about out on C-Pier, meeting up with family and friends, listening to some beats, watching the boats glide by, enjoying the cool salty breezes, just having a great time !

P.S. Now, if you catch that “Friday feeling” on a Saturday, Oyster Farm has the cure ! This year, Crush Friday and Saturday down at C-Pier !

 

The Sky Was Blue And Hearts Were Sunny For The Annual Shuck and Suck Oyster Festival…

Monday, August 20th, 2018

DSC_2631The Shuck and Suck Oyster Festival on Virginia’s Eastern Shore has something for everyone, landlubbers and mariners alike. On the land side, the Shriner’s Parade is the big attraction. Shriners are known for mixing fun with good works, a laudable life balance and last Saturday morning they delighted kids and adults alike at the annual Shriner’s Parade down Mason Avenue in Cape Charles, a big part of this colorful Festival. Led by the color guard from the USCG station, followed by Mayor Smitty Dize and local Fire Department vehicles ( including the impressive tanker truck aptly named “Big Water” ), the Shriners brought a sense of joy and lightheartedness to a beautiful breezy summer morning. The little cars and little trucks are personal favorites, the incongruity of seeing these great big guys zooming around in these teeney, tiny vehicles absolutely tickles my funny bone.

 

DSC_2613Of course, the cause they are marching to raise awareness of is deadly serious. The Shriner’s mission is to support the 22 Shriner’s Hospitals which sponsor cutting edge research and offer innovative medical care to children suffering from acute burns, serious orthopedic problems, lip and cleft palate and spinal injuries. For children in need, it’s provided absolutely free of charge. So it was great to see them in Town again Saturday, their own Color Guard, the clowns, the tall pirate ship, the HeeHaw gang, antique cars, motorcycle contingent and of course the big guys driving the tiny cars and tractor trailers, all parading down Bay and Mason Avenues to the applause of the crowds gathered along the route to cheer them on.

 

 

Although the Parade is a big part of the Annual Shuck and Suck Oyster Festival, over at Oyster Farm Marina, the Smith Island Skiff races featuring tiny skiffs racing at amazing speeds along a difficult course in King’s Creek, the Annual Boat Docking contest, Oyster and Clam Eating Contests, numerous bands, fireworks are huge favorites and generate lots of excitement each year. So if you missed it this year, mark it on your August calendar for next, loads of fun to be had for all.
