St. Mary’s Fall Festival was a big success

Sunday brought joy and happiness to many who attended the St. Mary’s Fall Festival.

The festival was host to many booth and games for children like fishing and ring toss. There were even booth set up for the adults such as a plant walk.

The festival had a huge play area for the kids. It had a double-sided race bounce house where kids enjoyed running, climbing and sliding all day long.

The festival even had a massive auction where items were donated by the community and auctioned off to raise money for the church.

There was some of the coldest beer and the yummiest BBQ sold. There were even booths that had funnel cakes and snow cones.

Even though there was an auction, there were two small stores set up to help raise money as well.

All in all the St. Mary’s Fall Festival was a big success and all the money raised will be a great help.

A Texas Fall Festival fit for a Queen

Calvert’s Fall Festival, a joint effort of the Discover Calvert Merchants Association and the Calvert Chamber of Commerce, was everything a fall festival should be and maybe a little bit more—how many similar fall fests get a visit from Britain’s most famous monarch—Queen Victoria?

Just after the cold front came in on Friday evening, announcing that Fall had come indeed, the barbeque pits were set up in preparation for a long morning of slow cooking. On Saturday, children and their parents woke up to crisp autumn breezes and a long day of family fun, starting with the parade at 9:30. The children’s games and art contest, supported by two local churches and a host of volunteers, produced lots of smiles as face art was applied to kids’ cheeks and kids, in turn, painted pumpkins for Halloween. A barrel train pulled kids around the Chamber lot and between rides; children played games and produced art.
