This is a year of firsts for St. Pius V Parish’s Spring Kermes: first three day event, first year for the beer garden, first year for some new, exciting games. “This is the family-friendly event our friends and neighbors know and love,” said Fr. Brendan Curran, OP, the pastor of St. Pius V. “We want everyone to feel welcome and have added security to make sure that everyone is safe and can enjoy themselves.” The annual parish event begins at 5 pm Friday June 6 with a 2-hour happy hour. From 5-7 pm beers and food plates are just $2.00. Friday night the fun continues with music, games, food and beer until 11 pm. On Saturday events start at 12:30 pm and on Sunday they begin at 10 am. There will be a full program of music, dancing and cultural events, as well as clowns that the children enjoy, and all of the great food and treats that you remember. This year we’ve contracted with a company that will bring some new excitement to the Kermes game area, including a rock climbing wall, a twin spin, and other games that children and adults can enjoy. Visitors may purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win a red Mustang Convertible for a $5 donation. The tickets are on sale right up to the time of the drawing about 10 pm Sunday night. Winners need not be present, but it is fun when they are! We encourage everyone to join us for the moment of the drawing. Last year’s winner was working on the sound system for the band when he heard Father Brendan call his name.
