The 64th Annual St. Mary’s Fall Festival is just around the corner set for the weekend of Oct 17-18th. We are looking forward to the exciting new changes this year and hope the community comes out to join in on the fun! Friday, Oct 17th will begin the festivities with the Knights of Columbus spaghetti dinner in the Parish Life Center. New this year will be “take-out” dinners! Doors open at 5pm and take out options will be under covered walkway at entrance of Parish Life Center. Dinner Prices are $8 for adults $4 for kids, and No More than $25 per family. The live auction will start promptly at 7pm so you won’t want to leave directly after dinner, but stay around for the Live Action of the Live Auction!! The Children’s activities to keep the kiddos happy and entertained will also begin at 7pm thru 9pm with a bounce house, crafts, and Charlie Brown Pumpkin and Frozen playing on the Big Screen! Friday there will also be a Cake/Pie/Cupcake baking contest, and then one can taste the scrumptiousness at the Bake Shoppe. St. Lucy’s Silent Auction featuring arts, treasures, handpainted furniture and theme baskets will start accepting bids, and offer “buy it now” pricing on certain items. On Saturday, Oct 18th festival activities will begin at 10 am and continue with extended hours, new this year, until 6pm on the Parish Grounds. If you can’t make it during the day for lunch, then come by for dinner! The selection of festival foods will be amazing as always! Returning again will be the American Grille, Hot Wngs, Bar-B-Que Chicken, The German Bier Garten, New Orleans Cajun, and Spanish Food Booth. You may want to try one for lunch and another for dinner! Too much to have to choose just one!! Armbands will again be available for unlimited play on the inflatables again this year, but with a bit of a difference. One can choose a “morning” band or an “afternoon” band” for $20 a piece , or a “combo” all day- band for a discounted price of $30. You will want to take advantage of the bargain on the bands because it includes unlimited play for all inflatables, excluding Hamster Ball, and The Human Gyro. For those of you looking for “wheels”, the Silent Car Auction is always super exciting. Come out to place your bid! If you missed the Silent Auction on Friday, you haven’t missed your chance as it will be going on throughout the day Saturday. The Bake Shoppe, Face Painting, and the Dried and Fresh Flowers, including mums and pumpkins, new this year, can also be found on the festival grounds! Live entertainment will be on the main stage throughout the day. The line up will include KCHS Dancers, Cheyenne Graff from Cookeville, The Mt.Leconte Jug Band, Max Souza, and The Holloway Sisters.
