OAKHURST – Community members looking for a fun night out to support charitable causes will want to attend the 22nd Annual Oakhurst Sierra Sunrise Rotary Cajun-Creole Fest on Saturday, Apr. 1. The fun begins at 6 p.m. and it all takes place at the Oakhurst Community Center.
Guests can look forward to “All-U-Can-Eat Shrimp, Ribs, Dirty Rice, Maque Choux Corn and homemade Bread Pudding.” Cajun Fest features a no-host bar with a variety of beverages and, for the second year in a row, the club will serve a popular green-colored mixed drink affectionately known as Swamp Water. Be on the lookout for outstanding raffle prizes and a live auction.
Tickets to the Cajun-Creole Fest are $45 per person and are available by calling (559) 283-4731. Tickets may also be purchased at the door on the evening of the event. Tables of eight or 10 can be reserved for a reduced per-person price of $40.
