Our Lady of Lourdes to hold annual Parish Festival

A little bit of country and rock n’ roll highlight this year’s entertainment lineup at Our Lady of Lourdes Annual Parish Festival for Sept. 14, 15 and 16. The festival offers games, food, activities, rides and entertainment for young and old alike.

Friday night starts at 5 p.m., with love songs from Ryan Workman, well-known area tenor. At 6 p.m. the music switches genres, turning into a down-home country hoedown worthy of dusting off those cowboy boots. Leo & KG with Family Tradition will play country and western tunes to encourage some dosey-does on the dance floor.

On Friday, there will be a variety of festival foods like meatball and hot sausage sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs, fresh-cut French fries, walking tacos, ice cream, cotton candy and fresh-squeezed lemonade. There also will be country-style food — slow-cooked smoked beef brisket sandwich or pulled pork sandwich, zippy baked beans and tangy coleslaw. People can purchase homemade apple cobbler for dessert.

Saturday night switches to rock n’ roll, as Walk Don’t Run takes to the stage at 5 p.m. with their renditions of classic rock and pop favorites, followed by Five O’Clock World, with their rock and country sounds.

Sunday features area pianist Tom Wetzel at noon, then the students of You Can Do It Fitness will strut their stuff with group dance routines.

The festival runs from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 2 p.m. September 16 at the Our Lady of Lourdes, 800 Mulberry St., Montoursville.
