Combined St. John Festivals Sunday|
|Antigo’s largest Catholic parish is combining its two main fund-raising events under one umbrella Sunday at the Langlade County Fairgrounds.|
St. John Catholic Church will host the International Food/Fall Festival from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. There is no admission charge for the day full of activities and unique dining opportunities.
The parish previous held two separate events—one for the International Food Fest and the other for the Fall Festival—but decided to combine them as one event.
The international breakfast tents will open at 8:30 a.m. followed by the opening of all booths and raffles at 9 a.m.
At 11 a.m. there will be a polka Mass with Smokey Express celebrated by Rev. Dave Schmidt.
The international food court will open at 11:30 a.m. with ethnic foods and drinks from Belgium , Canada, the Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, China, and Thailand along with the United States. Native American cuisine will also be featured.
There will be a live auction with Rev. Charles Hoffmann as auctioneer at 1 p.m. with the Green Bay Packer game on the big screen televisions at 3:30 p.m.
Drawings will begin at 5 p.m. for a freezer full of meat and a variety of hunting guns.
At 5:30 p.m. there will be the big drawing for a 2013 GMC Terrain or $15,000 cash, plus 15 other cash prizes. Tickets are $10 each, three for $25 or eight for $50.
The day includes more as well, including live entertainment with Smokey Express, Lovin’ Country and the Heritage Academy of Irish Dancers.
There will be children’s games and activities, inflatable fun houses and Brandt’s horse-drawn wagon rides.
There will also be a variety of silent and live auctions and a new “purse-onality” booth featuring new and used name-brand purses and scarves.
The Irish Dancers will return for this year's combined International Food/Fall Festival Sunday at the Langlade County Fairgrounds.
