Seven Sorrows festival to be held this week

From perogies and pies to carnival games with prizes and rides, the 12th annual Seven Sorrows Community Festival has something for everyone.
This year, the festival will be held July 10-12 from 6 to 10 p.m. on the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church grounds on Race Street.
The church hopes the festival will bring together the entire community with games of fun, skill and chance for all ages. Bingo will be held during the evenings in the cafeteria, and there will be plenty of carnival rides.

You can also find some sweet rides from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 10 during the festival’s 4th annual car and bike show on East Water and Vine streets.

Even if  you opt out of the carnival games, you can still take home some treasures by stopping at the flea market in the gym, or the craft corner, or bidding at the silent auction and basket raffle.

To top off the night, there will be plenty of food, from carnival classics such as fresh cut french fries, burgers, hot dogs and funnel cakes, to ethnic foods including haluski, halupki, bigos, and perogies.

Festival-goers can also sit back, relax and enjoy the sounds of Dan Steele on Thursday, the Polka Quads on Friday and Fresh Ayre on Saturday.
