The Halifax County Convention and Visitors Bureau launched its newest Roanoke Valley Rocks fish at the Mayflower Seafood Restaurant.
Mayflower is located at 1330 Julian R. Allsbrook Highway and has been in business for 20 years.
Roula Piteris and her family are committed to serving fresh seafood to Roanoke Valley residents and visitors, HCVB President and CEO Lori Medlin said.
During the COVID-19 pandemic they are open for take out every day from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and dine-in is available Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Local artist Riley Mills painted this fish.
The Roanoke Valley Rocks is a public relations/public art campaign designed to uplift and inspire the Roanoke Valley, Medlin said. “This program has been successful because of the many local businesses that launched fish at their locations and supported the project. The Rockfish was chosen as our campaign mascot to pay homage to one of the world’s premier sport fish that chooses to return home to the Roanoke Valley each spring.”
