Low Country Boil

Low Country Boil - Summer Kick-off Party!

The Creative Arts Guild celebrated its Fourth Annual Low Country Boil Summer Celebration and Fundraiser on Saturday, June 17. Low Country Boil is a fun, lighthearted “Welcome to Summer” event at the Creative Arts Guild's Spigel Pavillion (520 West Waugh Street in Dalton, 6:00pm – 9:00pm), where everyone can enjoy great food and delicious beverages including craft beer, a sangria bar, lemonade, tea, and dancing to some lively beach music. Recommended evening attire: Hawaiian shirts, sundresses, shorts, flip-flops or sandals.

Low Country Boil is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon and evening, and, at the same time, support the arts in your community. What could be more fun than to join this delicious cook-off, sample the offerings of each kitchen’s boil, enjoy cold beverages and dance to great beach and bayou music by Ginny and the Tonics!

Before the band gets started, guests voted for their favorite teams and recipes for the “People’s Choice” award. Other coveted awards are “Judges’ Favorite,” “Best Boil Recipe,” “Best Kitchen Décor” and “Most Annoying Trash-Talk” among others. A distinguished panel of judges will be announced soon. They will have their work cut out for themselves as they taste samples of each kitchen’s food and make their award decisions.
