A super Summer Festival

St. Patrick Church of Cedar Lake’s Summer Festival was described as super. It was an apt description as Sunday, July 24, was a sunny day, with temperatures in the low 80s, plus a large crowd turned out for the annual celebration. Held at the church north of New Prague, the day began with an indoor Mass at 10 a.m. and after services there were games, food and music on the grounds of St. Patrick Church.

The main meal was the grilled chicken dinner with all the fixings. There were 1,200 chicken halves bought for the dinner and they were going steadily through the day. There was a snack bar for those still hungry after the dinner. While many people took advantage of the air conditioned dining room, others went outside and had a picnic at the many tables set up outside.

There were also kids’ games, bingo, a silent auction, a raffle and the country store that offered a vast array of items. George’s Concertina Band provided live music. Many families also took a look or climbed into the driver’s seats of the antique tractors. There was also a petting zoo and a pony ride that had a long line of children waiting for it. The pony was led around the church for the ride.
