PELHAM, Ala. (AP) — Alabama State Parks are debuting a new event meant to bring in more visitors.

The first "Baumhower's ShrimpFest and Barbecue" is set for Friday evening at Oak Mountain State Park, located in the Birmingham suburb of Pelham.

The event is a partnership between restaurant owner Bob Baumhower, the state park system, Alabama Gulf Seafood and a Birmingham-based beer maker, Good People Brewing Co.

The admission fee is included with park admission.

The Oak Mountain event is the first of six planned ShrimpFests.

Others will be held next year at Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores; Lake Point State Park in Eufaula; Lake Guntersville State Park in Guntersville; and Joe Wheeler State Park in Rogersville.

The events are being held in conjunction with the 75th anniversary of Alabama's state parks.
