Food, music, fun headline St. Andrew’s Festival

JOHNSTOWN — Children’s activities, music and good food will all be part of a local church festival.

St. Andrew’s Festival will be held from noon to 9 p.m. Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday on the church and school grounds at 1621 Ferndale Ave., Johnstown.

The festival will open with a children’s matinee from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday featuring Classic Clowns, Johnstown police K-9 demonstrations, Johnstown Fire Department, horse and buggy rides, bouncy house, Spiderman and free popcorn, said Carolyn Blough, co-chairwoman for the festival.

Wine tasting with B&L Wine Cellars of Johnstown will be held from 3 to 9 p.m.

“There will be samples, and you can choose which wine to buy,” Blough said.

Bill Venet’s Cash Review will play two sets Saturday afternoon from 3 to 4 and 4:45 to 5:30, and Mark Keyser will demonstrate chain saw carving from 5:30 to 6.

Saturday evening’s music will feature Clay Bowser from 5:30 to 7:30 and Ken & Bo from 7:30 to 9:30.

On Sunday, booths will be open from noon to 6 p.m., and a chicken barbecue dinner featuring the music of Jerry Intihar will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Organizers recommend getting tickets for the dinner, which are $7, by calling the rectory at 288-4324.

“There also will be tickets on sale Saturday,” Blough said. “The dinner will be held inside.”

A car cruise will begin at noon Sunday, weather permitting.

The wine tasting will be held again from noon to 6.

Sunday’s music will feature polka with Rosie and the Jammers from noon to 3 and classic rock ’n’ roll with The Runaways from 3 to 6.

A basket raffle will be held inside both days.

Tickets will be $1 for cash and gas giveaways, and the winners will be drawn at 6 p.m. Sunday.

“We’ll draw two tickets – one for $1,000 cash and one for a $500 gas card,” Blough said.

Parking and admission will be free.
