GRAND HAVEN, Mich.─An old-fashioned barbecue chicken dinner, corn boil, pie-baking contest, big wheel races, kid’s games, sweet shop, community garage sale, car show and $5,000 raffle are all planned for the St. Patrick and St. Anthony Parish Festival.
The celebration runs Friday, Aug. 15 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 16 from 8 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. at 920 Fulton Street in Grand Haven. The festival is open to the public.
“This year’s event is different because we’ve added a good old fashioned open-pit, chicken barbecue dinner that kids and adults will enjoy,” said Fr. Bill Langlois, parish pastor. “We invite people to come for the fun and fellowship as we prepare whole, half chickens over charcoal in the open-pit style, along with baked beans, coleslaw and a baked potato.”
