Fish Fry, Green Expo & Catfish Kissin' Contest
Catfish Kissin' Contest Highlights 13th Annual CRBI-WLAQ-The Ridge 95.7 Fish Fry
Hot Cheese Grits! CRBI has gone and made its annual catfish feast into a regular Catfish Lovefest. We love the critters that live in our rivers so much, we're going to kiss them...er, at least we're going to have four "lucky winners" kiss them in our Catfish Kissin' Contest Nov. 8 at First United Methodist Church in Downtown Rome.
Some of Rome's finest local "celebrities" are competing for the chance to kiss a live Coosa River catfish at the Fish Fry. The "winners" will be determined by the amount of money they raise to help protect our rivers. The three contestant that raise the most money kiss...as does the contestant who raises the least money (our bottom feeder). Of course, anyone that wants to show their love for catfish is welcome to join in the fun. The smooching begins at 2 p.m. VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE CONTESTANT AT OUR CATFISH KISSIN' BALLOT.
WHEN: SATURDAY, NOV. 8, 2014 FISH SERVED 11 A.M. TO 3 P.M.
WHERE: FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH IN DOWNTOWN ROME
WHY: EAT A FISH, SAVE A RIVER! PROCEEDS BENEFIT CRBI'S EFFORTS TO PROTECT NORTH AMERICA'S MOST BIOLOGICALLY DIVERSE RIVER BASIN...INCLUDING THE CATFISH THAT LIVE THERE!
