Tickets are still available for all-you-can-eat shrimp at the Suffolk Ruritan Club Shrimp Feast Scholarship Fundraiser on Thursday as part of the festivities at Suffolk’s Peanut Fest.

The feast will be from 3 to 7 p.m. in the main stage area of the festival grounds at the Suffolk Executive Airport, 1410 Airport Road. Enjoy all-you-can-eat shrimp, barbecue and cole slaw to go with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, with live entertainment provided by Gator Head Band.

All of the proceeds go towards the club’s programs that help those in need throughout Suffolk, amounting to about $50,000 annually, according event chairman Jimmy Franks.
