A man known only as Red from Dairy Flat cleaned up the “Most Disgusting Way to Eat an Oyster” by using his long ginger beard to eat an oyster.Hundreds of shellfish lovers were at our annual Oyster Feastival to celebrate the Market’s 2nd birthday.
Other finalists were “Hangi Bro” Rob Peterson, who squished his oyster on the ground before sucking it up, and Lilly Brinsdon of Haruru Falls, who ate her oyster off the sole of her sneaker.
Other attractions at the festival included oyster eating races, shellfish treats such as oyster po boys and fritters, helicopter rides, a children’s petting zoo and merry go round.
