Holy Trinity hosts summer bash this weekend

Staff Writer

Holy Trinity Catholic Parish will be throwing the party of the summer this weekend, and they are hosting it all weekend long. Beginning Friday morning and going until late Saturday evening, the church will be hosting a myriad of games, contests, food, and fellowship for family and friends across the community.
The weekend-long event kicks off on Friday beginning with a meal for the community. The meal is held at Our Lady of Guadalupe Hall which is next to the church.
“We are going to have a great time,” said Arthur Olague, event chairman. “I think the big thing is the food. We have a meal that we serve on Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and then after that on Saturday we have our festival.
“Anybody in the community can come,” he continued. “We want everyone to come out and eat a nice dinner. It's real nice.”
While Saturday's games don't kick off until 6 p.m., the food will start to be served around lunchtime.
“We start serving at 11 a.m. until pretty much we run out of food,” said Olague. “That is usually 7, 7:30, 8 p.m. We have booths outside that are game booths. Our youth group will run that. Anything from darts to a baseball throw. They always come up with new things every year.”
Also planned is Bingo and music.
The Holy Trinity Catholic Parish Summer Festival will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday at the Our Lady of Guadalupe Hall right next to the church located at 1009 Hearn Street in Big Spring.
