Roving Reporter | "Coastal Sunshine Welcomes Community to Glow's Inaugural Rockport Harvest Festival" by Karey Butterworth
Categories: Roving Reporter
Glow Seafood Kitchen organized the event, which included free family activities such as apple bobbing, pumpkin painting and a children's pie eating contest. Pumpkin bread, shortbread cookies and pumpkin cheesecake were on offer along with mini mason jars filled with Shiner Bock Chili, Pulled Pork over Mashed Potatoes and Macaroni and Cheese. The newly constructed Glow Garden Bar by the bay tempted thirsty patrons with a selection of craft beers along with pumpkin margaritas and cold apple cider for the children. Local musician Hank Wiley provided live music from the covered porch, where guests took a break from the sun to enjoy a toe-tapping selection of both standard and original tunes.
David Swartwout and Karey Butterworth, owners of Glow, emphasized creating a welcoming space for families and friends. "We wanted to create an afternoon for the community to come and enjoy our little home away from home on Little Bay," commented Karey. "It was great to see people stopping by on their bicycles and golf carts to join in the fun. The music, laughter, lively conversation and the happy children with blueberry pie on their smiling faces, running through the pumpkin patch was wonderful to see.”
"Community is very important to Karey and me," David continued. "We’re a local restaurant committed to providing seasonal, local foods and doing our best to offer something for all ages. Our goal is to provide the community events on a regular basis, so that everyone can enjoy our beautiful Texas coast."
"Glow is highly involved in the local community though fundraisers and donations including Rotary Club, Humane Society, American Heart Society, Rockport Center for the Arts, The Texas Maritime Museum and other non-profit organizations. Glow also provides a scholarship program supporting local high school students for college tuition."
