GEORGETOWN, Del.- Year after year, the last Friday in February is the day for all oyster and shrimp lovers in Delaware to come together for a great cause.

The annual men's-only fund-raising event known as the Oyster Eat will be held on Friday at the Georgetown Fire Company.

This is the 78 annual Oyster Eat that will begin at 8 p.m. and last until midnight. Tickets are $27 in advance and $30 at the door.

There are 110 bushels of oysters served to go along with 35 half-kegs of beer.

The Shrimp Feast is a women's-only event that will also take place from 8 p.m. until midnight at the Lewes Fire Department. The event that was established in 1991 holds an estimated attendance of 1,000 women.

There are about 600 pounds of shrimp served to go along with 10 half-kegs of beer.

Both of these events have all-you-can-drink beer and all-you-can-eat hot dogs, egg salad sandwiches and shellfish.

This year the Lewes Fire Department is adding a wine pull and a chance to win a Rhythm of Love necklace as well as Alex and Ani merchandise.

Tickets for the Shrimp Feast are $25 at the door. Proceeds to both events will go towards their respective fire department.
