Springfest sparkles despite rainy weather

Even as gray skies wept and the ground turned a glistening green, Church of the Epiphany celebrated its annual Springfest event May 17, 18 and 19.

Features included carnival rides and games, concession stands, bingo, a beer tent, petting zoo, Princess Party, photo studio, raffle prizes and more.

Musical entertainment took the stage when Hitchville performed May 17. The 451st Army Band played the afternoon of May 18 and the Johnny Holm Band was scheduled to perform that evening. On May 19 a talent show took center stage at noon and then David Dean and the Misfits were on tap for entertainment with special guest Ralph Hintz from the Castaways.
