As soon as I heard frog legs and bison chili were on the menu, I knew the Sportsmen's Dinner would be an interesting night. We've never had an event quite like this at the Creation Museum before! But the dinner was delicious, and the entertainment was fantastic.

The dinner also included fried catfish, bass, corn on the cob and more. The guests enjoyed eating outside under one of the picnic shelters before heading inside for a concert by Buddy Davis. Then Buddy spun a couple of yarns in his own engaging way, weaving the gospel message into his stories.
