Fish Fry and Catfish Kissin’ Contest returns on Nov. 10
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. 10, 2018 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 contestants 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.
2018 CATFISH KISSIN’ COMPETITION
This year’s Catfish Kissers include ALLISON TERRY, AUSTEN EARP, JOHN GRAHAM, MELISSA RUTLEDGE, THUNDER PINARD, TRENT PRAULT, BRAD REEDER, and ERICA SIMPSON.
