Beautiful fall weather and amusement rides -- it must be the annual carnival.
The 20th annual event was framed by perfect weather, which brought many people out to have some fun and help raise money for the parish.
Rides, game booths, food and even a DJ helped to entertain patrons of all ages. Numerous game booths, such as one to test your dart throwing skills, were ready for guests to play, as well as other games that sent many children home with a brand new goldfish.
Donald, who was at the event for the first time, was able to pop enough balloons on the dart game to win his girlfriend, Rebecca, a stuffed teddy bear.
This year, the parish brought in some new and improved rides, including a big slide, "The Jitterbug", a ferris wheel and the "Monkey Maze."
Each booth and ride had lines that kept the workers very busy for most of the weekend.
Donald Janonis, a worker on the "Crazy Cat," has been working at carnivals for two years. He said that he loves seeing kids smile and walk away with a prize.
"The weekend was extremely busy,” Janonis added.
Julia, a local fifth grader, had a huge smile on her face as she rode the "Scat" ride and then won a teddy bear to take home to remember her exciting night.
A food court was also available in the main tent, with volunteers from the Knights of Columbus serving up the delectable bites -- as good as one would expect from their yearly feasts.
All of the money from this event went towards the works of the parish, including the CYO youth programs, church, school and social ministry.
