The Fall Festival Community Oyster Roast is based on the popular roll-up-your-sleeves southern tradition, which features sacks of fresh, local oysters in the shell roasted over outdoor grills until juice starts to bubble out of the shells, then delivered to the tables where they need a nudge from an oyster knife to release the top shell and seductive aromas, said development associate Catherine Emry. Attendees are urged to bring a favorite oyster knife.

The menu includes all of the roasted oysters you can eat, clam chowder, oyster stew, French fried sweet potatoes, hot dogs and hamburgers with all the fixings and dessert. Beer, wine and soft drinks are included. You must be 21 to attend. Tickets purchased in advance are $45 per person. Any available tickets remaining will be $50 per person at the door.

Ticket holders also will enjoy dancing from 5 to 9 p.m. to the music of the Phun Doctors, a premier classic rock and oldies band from Chesapeake.

Raffle tickets can be purchased for a chance to win first prize, a $750 gift certificate to Tri-Star Supermarket; second prize, an iPad mini; and third prize, a $100 BP gas card.

Event or raffle tickets can be purchased at Specials, Chesapeake Boat Basin, Ace Hardware and Burke’s Jewelers in Kilmarnock; at River Birch Nursery and Gifts in Locust Hill; or at Chesapeake Academy. Event tickets only can be purchased online at
