12th Annual Cahaba River Fry-Down returns to virtual – Cahaba River Society prioritizes community safety for catfish-cooking competition & festival

The Cahaba River Society will host its 12th annual Cahaba River Fry-Down Catfish Cookoff and Festival virtually in 2021. While the nonprofit hoped to bring the community back together in-person this year, the current surge in the pandemic has required a return to the online format that made the 2020 festival the widest-reaching event in the organization’s history.
