Oysters, BBQ, Pirates, Superheroes, BMX Stunts, Soul Asylum, Fuel, and Cooking Competitons @ Norwalk Oyster Fest 2011

2 Sep

34th Norwalk Oyster Festival: September 9-11, 2011

Some reasons to check out the Norwalk Oyster Fest this year:

Food Fun

There will be cooking competitions, BBQ, oysters, and the other popular Fest foods.  The BBQ from the Kansas City BBQ Society was okay last time we went, we’d try the New England BBQ Society or stick to the tents and the oysters.  Also, there will be lots of chances to get food from charitable organizations.  We’re all about helping out, and this is an awesome way to because you definitely have to get your grub on, so why not do so and do good at the same time? ;)  




9/9:  Fuel!  “Hemorrhage (In My Hands),” “Shimmer,” “Won’t Back Down,” and “Innocent.”  

9/10:  Soul Asylum, baby!  Remember their songs?  We do!  “Runaway Train,” “Misery,” and “Somebody to Shove?”  Hell yes.  

9/11:  Silverado.

BMX and motocross stunts.  Seriously, this was awesome the last time we went.  Flips and all other kinds of stunts.  Kristien and I would also perform, but we wouldn’t want to make the riders feel inadequate.  So, we just watch.

Family Friendly

Avast! Pirates will be walking around but best mind your booty, landlubbers.  Dress yer kid as a pirate (if they aren’t already like that) and, arrhh, they be getting in free.  Pirates not yer thing, lassy?  Come by Sunday and you get to see Marvel Superheroes such as Captain America, Thor, and Spider-man.  No mention, though, of Oyster-Man, Captain OmNom, or Bloated-Girl.  ;)
