SAINT AUGUSTINE – Some 20 restaurants are expected to put their best chowder on the line  Feb. 25 when the St. Augustine Shrine Club hosts the Chowder Challenge for Children from noon to 4 p.m. at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, A1A South, just south of the city of St. Augustine. There is no admission charge, but a $5 parking fee will be requested at all parking areas, including the amphitheatre, the adjoining Elks lodge and at R.B. Hunt School. Shuttles will provide transportation to the amphitheatre from  the school parking lot.

Categories this year are Minorcan Conch, Seafood, New England Clam and Minorcan Clam, with patrons invited to purchase a taste for $1, with tickets sold at the entrance. Entertainment will be provided by a local DJ, and a variety of souvenirs  will be available for purchase. All net proceeds are donated to the Shrine Hospitals, says Jerod Meeks, chairman of this year’s challenge.

Kenny Cowperthwaite is club president.
