St. Stephen Church Festival Next Weekend

Church of St. Stephen

ST. STEPHEN — St. Stephen Church will host its annual festival Aug. 31-Sept. 1 at the St. Stephen Catholic Church grounds at 103 Central Ave S., St. Stephen.

Sunday’s activities begin at 5 p.m. with food and refreshments. A firefighters’ water ball fight is scheduled from 5-7 p.m. A street dance will follow from 6-10 p.m. featuring Corridor playing rock n roll music from the 1970s and 1980s.

The festival will resume at 11 a.m. Monday with a pork chop dinner and homemade pie. Live music by the JJs and Laverne & the Starlights will run from 11 a.m.-7 p.m.

Other Labor Day activities include food stands, a country auction, a country store and a quilt stand.

There will be a large inflatable obstacle course for children and games for people of all ages.

Those who wish to try their luck have several opportunities: a grand raffle with more than 100 prizes or a goat raffle, whose lucky winner will go home with … a goat.

“Some people would really like a goat and some wouldn’t. What’s fun about (the goat raffle) is you can also put someone else’s name on the ticket,” the Rev. Robert Harren said. “We tried it last year and had so much fun with it that we’re going to try it again. Last year the winner really wanted the goat and really appreciated it.”

The festival is free and open to the public.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the church’s general fund.

For information, call the St. Stephen parish office at 251-1520.
