The St. Roch’s Feast made a triumphant return this past weekend, as families from around the community gathered at St. Roch’s Parish in Chickahominy to experience one of a kind food, live music, and carnival events.
People of all ages were able to enjoy mouthwatering dishes such as Italian sausages and peppers, funnel cakes, and ice cream in addition to the more classic carnival fare, such as popcorn, and cotton candy.
Additionally, attendees could participate in carnival rides and games, such as the Ferris Wheel and could even enter a raffle to win large prizes!
This year’s St. Roch’s Feast provided a return to normalcy in which parents and grandparents could introduce the younger generations to summer fun.
St. Roch is the Patron Saint of the Italian town of Morra de Sanctis where many of the parish founding members came from. The annual St. Roch's Feast benefits the church and its commitments to the community.
