This one of a kind fish fry competition brings out some of the region’s best “catfish” cooking experts, local craft beer and a carnival atmosphere for people of all ages. Most importantly, this fundraiser supports the Cahaba River Society’s Shane Hulsey’s CLEAN Environmental Education program, a hands-on “in the river” educational program that has served more than 30,000 youth and teachers.
