Ocracoke’s own Eduardo Chavez will once again compete for top chef honors at 2 p.m. Sept. 17 in the Day at the Docks Seafood Taco Throwdown in Hatteras Village.

Chavez, owner of Eduardo’s of Ocracoke taco stand, will battle it out against Hatteras’s Chef Lalo Rebollo for the best seafood taco.

Day at the Docks was started to celebrate the “Spirit of Hatteras” when the village recovered from Hurricane Isabel in 2003 as an intact community, anchored by the commercial and charter fishermen. It will be held Sept. 16 and 17. For details on this and other events, visit the Day at the Docks website.
