MONCKS CORNER, S.C. – The 18th annual Shuckin’ in the Park Oyster Roast is Saturday, March 11, at Old Santee Canal Park in Moncks Corner. Park gates open at noon and oysters will be served from 1 to 6 p.m.

Buckets of oysters are $10 and food tickets can be purchased inside. Even if oysters aren’t your cup of brine, there will be hamburgers, hot dogs and the famous “Shuckin’ fish stew” for sale.

Live entertainment is again from Customs 4 and Friends, whose blend of beach music, oldies and popular music has made them a local favorite. Children 12 and under are admitted free, and there is a jump castle for their enjoyment. Visitors can also explore the natural beauty of the historic park, nestled within the backwaters of Biggin Creek, or tour the park’s interpretive center.
