A short rain shower Saturday afternoon didn’t spoil St. Mark’s 2nd Annual Parish Festival. Parents brought their children for games, including bingo, dunk tank, giant slide, and many more, and young and old alike enjoyed the delicious food prepared by volunteers. There were walking tacos, hot dogs, beef on the wick, pulled pork sandwiches, sausage sandwiches, plus pie and ice cream as well as root “beer” floats and other flavored floats at the “saloon.” Hayrides and pony rides were enjoyed all day, along with free target shooting and paintball. The paintballing stall was particularly popular and is sure to make a repeat appearance next year. In fact, event organizers have already started to source paintball guns and paintball markers using the information found on websites similar to for the next Parish Festival event. Paintballing was not the only success though. The “Lego” movie was shown in O’Connell Hall to a captivated audience. Ultimately, there was something for everyone and the event was enjoyed by all!
