Come September, Calabash will be the site of the Lions Club’s Oktoberfest. The event, planned for Sept. 20, will feature music, a beer tent, people and food. During their Feb. 13 meeting, the town board of commissioners agreed the town could assist with the club’s needs like tables, a stage and donated maintenance time.
The event promises to be a good time in the town, but it belongs to the club, not the town.
We think it is time Calabash had a festival to call its own, and a proposed seafood festival is a splendid idea.
