St. Mary Festival features food, live music, games

The summer season of church festivals continues Saturday and Sunday (July 29-30) with festivities outside St. Mary Catholic Church, 7307 40th Ave.

The festival is open 3 to 10:30 p.m. Saturday and noon to 9 p.m. Sunday.

Organizers call the event “a family friendly festival with live music, kids’ games, food, drink and fun.”

The “Win a Dream Raffle” features prizes of $5,000 and $3,000 in cash, a $1,500 Chicago getaway, an Apple iPad, a KitchenAid stand mixer and a propane patio heater.

Musical entertainment on Saturday features Stu the Piano Man from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and Bella Cain from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Festival organizers call the group “the Midwest’s hottest country band with a kick.”

Sunday starts with an Outdoor Mass at 11 a.m. “under the big tent.”

Sunday’s festival features Yesterday’s Children performing classic rock from 1:30 to 5 p.m. and Modern Day Romeos from 6 to 9 p.m.

Festival food includes bombers, chicken pitas, hot dogs, brats, corn on the cob, fried cheese curds, cream puffs and cotton candy. Games include Bingo, mini golf, pull tabs, Chuck-O-Luck, a dunk tank, minnow races, a Kids’ Zone and “Raffle Mania.”
