All proceeds raised at the cook-off will help fund the Special Events for Mexico Beach’s Best Blast on the Beach July Fourth fireworks celebration.

“The cook-off has become one of the must attend events here in Mexico Beach,” said Shoaf. “This is one event you will not want to miss or taste!”

Happening simultaneously on the opposite side of Highway 98, will be the third annual Society of Expressive Artists (SEA) Art Walk, which will showcase artists from all along the Forgotten Coast.

The cost to showcase is $5 for SEA members, $25 for nonmembers and $35 for those who want to showcase and join the organization. The application deadline has been extended to Feb. 3.

Interested artists may download the application from the SEA Facebook page at

SEA is a group of local artists that reside in coastal communities along the Florida panhandle. The goal of the group is to provide a forum for local artists to promote their work, share ideas and opportunities, to network with other artist organizations and to identify and create art exhibit venues.
