– The best amateur catfish fryers in Alabama will square off for the 3rd Annual Cahaba River Society Fry-Down, a competitive catfish cooking contest and riverfront festival to celebrate the beauty and significance of the Cahaba River. A fundraiser for the Cahaba River Society, the Fry-Down is Sunday, Oct. 7, 11am-4pm, at Trussville Springs, along the banks of the Cahaba in Trussville, Ala.
The Fry-Down is like a BBQ or chili cook-off, but with catfish and hushpuppies. Local teams of enthusiastic chefs will prepare catfish and fixings for a panel of celebrity judges. Fest-goers can sample their efforts and learn about the diversity of the Cahaba River and its role as a source of drinking water and recreation for Alabama.
The Fry-Down kicks off at 11 a.m
. on Oct. 7 along a beautiful stretch of the river in the Trussville Springs development on Highway 11 just north of downtown Trussville. A donation of $15 gets admission to the event.
