5 Things To Know About Lake Carolina’s Oyster Roast

What better way to welcome spring than with a lakeside picnic? Lake Carolina’s 12th Annual Oyster Roast, running from 4pm-7pm on April 9th, marks the community’s transition into warmer months. Attendees can enjoy an awesome day of live music and delicious food, while helping out a great cause. Here are five things you totally need to know about the master-planned development’s latest event:

1. Guests can shuck the oysters themselves.
Don’t just plan to eat a hearty meal; get ready to tackle it, hands-on! Guests will be served their oysters with a pair of gloves and a knife for the full ‘oyster roast’ experience. Are you up for the challenge?

2. It’s a foodie’s paradise. Whether you’re a seafood junkie or prefer tasty comfort food (you don’t even have to like oysters!), this event is one you won’t want to miss. The mouth-watering menu includes chicken and rice gumbo, pulled pork barbecue and a chili bar! Tea and lemonade will also be supplied with an invitation to BYOB. Yum. 3. All proceeds go to The Children’s Charities of the Midland. Lake Carolina’s very own non-profit organization strives to further the welfare and education of South Carolina’s youngest residents. The Oyster Roast is one of three annual events that the community puts on to raise money for this charity.

4. The oysters are catered by Southern Way. Get an authentic dining experience with Southern Way catering. Their mission, as a company “grounded in delicious Southern cuisine,” is to provide “the most delectable food, the most attentive service, the most memorable presentations, and the most pleasurable event experience.” This isn’t just your regular picnic.

5. Kids under age three eat free. While adults can indulge in an ‘All You Can Eat’ experience for $40, children 12 and under can eat for five bucks and the little ones eat for free. The community’s beautiful, spacious, open area is the perfect place for kids to run around and get some fresh air. Make the Oyster Roast a family event!
