Hear many a lie told Friday

The Liars will be out and about again at the Haughty Heron, where on Friday, Feb. 23, from 6 to 7:30 p.m, everyone’s invited to the 10th annual Liar’s Challenge at The Haughty Heron where no story is too outlandish to tell.

Fish Tales, Tall Tales and Bear Tales – all are invited to tell a story for a maximum of nine minutes. Or just come to listen!

While the audience laughs, a panel of impartial and expert judges will be deciding who is the best liar on the coast. The Haughty Heron is providing the first prize winner with $100. The Bay Storytellers will provide the second prize winner $75 and third place $50 will be presented by Coastal Community Association. 

Robyn A. Rennick, a familiar local teller will emcee the event. You can trust anything she says, maybe. Pat Nease of Bay Storytellers and a state champion liar will see if she can top last year’s tale.

Come from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. to hear The Ukulele Orchestra of the Forgotten Coast play. Sing along with them.

The Liar’s Challenge is a benefit for the Gulf County Sheriff’s Easter Basket Drive and charities of the Coastal Community Association. The Sheriff Department has 300 children they are providing Easter baskets for. An Easter Basket, a toy or a cash donation is asked for all who attend the event. The Coastal Community Association supports the Sheriff’s Christmas Toy Drive and Easter Drive, as well as the Two Fish Food Market and Career Source Food Pantry, Citizens of Gulf County Recovery team, Hurricane Relief, and more.

This event is sponsored by the Coastal Community Association and The Haughty Heron. Other sponsors are Coast 2 Coast Printing, and Bay Storytellers.

The event will be held outside. Bring a chair – we anticipate a standing room crowd. Call 850 527-4671 for more information.
