Bullhole catfish fry Saturday

COOLEEMEE – The 16th Annual Catfish Fry will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19 at the RiverPark at Cooleemee Falls from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Proceeds will assist in maintaining the RiverPark, also known as the Bullhole.

The catfish fry will be held at the picnic arbor in the park. Mona Jo Griffin & friends will provide the entertainment.

The menu includes catfish, French fries, hush puppies, dessert, and a drink for $10.
