The Port Isabel Chamber of Commerce will host a Winter Texan Shrimp Boil on Wednesday, Feb. 24th from 3-5 pm.

The event is designed to show our appreciation for our Winter Texans and will be limited to the first 200 tickets sold. Tickets are priced at $5 per person and are available at the Chamber office.

The event will be held in The Garden at the Lighthouse—the new patio area just opened next to Designer Consigner and operated by Glenda Stafford. “We really appreciate Glenda allowing us to have this event at her new facility,” said Chamber President Betty Wells. “It is a perfect venue for this type of activity.”

The shrimp boil will feature a Cajun shrimp boil meal, refreshments and live entertainment by Tom Wayne. For more information, contact the Chamber office at 943-2262.
