The Frederick Fantastic Oyster Fry returns this year with fresh Texas Gulf Coast oysters and crafts for everyone. The 2013 Oyster Fry will be held on Saturday, Feb. 23 from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at the Prather Brown Center Cafeteria, 211 S 13th, in Frederick.
Diners at Frederick’s Fantastic Oyster Fry will have their choice of fried oysters or raw oysters. The dinner also comes with homemade slaw, chips, bread and a drink. Homemade desserts will also be available for a minimal cost. Advance tickets are $16 and may be purchased through the Chamber Office. Again this year, tickets may be purchased in advance by credit card by a secure website at www.frederickokchamber.org. Patrons are encouraged to use this secure site, as this will allow the Chamber office to process your order much more quickly. Credit card orders can still be placed by calling the chamber office at (580) 335-2126.
Tickets will be available around Frederick soon. Tickets will cost $20 the day of the Fry.
A craft show will run in conjunction with the Oyster Fry down the street at the First United Methodist Church at 12th and Grand, and at the Gray Gish Event Center at 126 N Main St, and at the former “Sweet Magnolia” antique store at 124 West Grand.

The craft show will begin at 11 a.m. and run until 7 p.m.
Several free attractions will be open that day, including the Pioneer Townsite Museum, The Crawford Collection, The Ramona Theater, the WWII Airborne Team Demonstration Team’s Hangar, and the Hackberry Flat Center.
