Family fun at the Irish Picnic – Lance Goodman

Ages Festival is Appropriate For

Family fun for all ages.

One fundraiser which we take great pride in is our Irish Picnic and Homecoming. Hosted by members of St. Patrick Church and the friends of the Parish, the Irish Picnic is always held the last Friday and Saturday in July. Some 21,000 pounds of barbecue pork will be slow cooked over hickory bark coals during a 24-hour laborious process, ready for hungry lunch crowds Saturday morning. Early visitors may want to feast on the 4,200 chicken halves that will be prepared by lunch time Friday. Plan to stay for the free live music and dancing that begins at 6:00 P.M. in the outdoor bandstand. If you're feeling a bit of the Irish luck, try your hand at the numerous games, that will be open from 5:00 P.M. until 11:00 P.M. Friday and again on Saturday from 9:00 A.M. until 11:00 P.M. Music and dancing will begin Saturday morning and last throughout the day. This is a wonderful time of good food, good fun and great fellowship, as well as a major supporter of St. Patrick’s School. Want more information about our Irish Picnic please feel free to contact the parish office 931-582-3493. No admission charge.
