San Gabriel – More than 16,000 people of many ages are expected to visit St. Anthony Catholic Church on Friday through Sunday, Oct. 6-8, 2017 as the church celebrates its 69th birthday with its Annual Family Fall Festival on the church grounds. Many people from local communities in San Gabriel Valley and beyond will attend to celebrate, said St. Anthony Family Fall Festival Chairperson Dan Cendejas.
“The Family Fall Festival is an annual birthday celebration for St. Anthony Church to bring your family and friends from the parish and local communities together to enjoy the festivities,” he said. “This year famous regional bands will perform with Susie Hansen Latin Band on Oct. 6, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., Cold Duck on Oct. 7, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., and The Reel Band on Oct. 8, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.”
The festival will include a variety of international foods, rides, games, bingo, free entertainment, and the “famous” cake walk, said Cendejas. “Every year we have great food and it’s amazing how many people wait for an opportunity to win a cake or other baked good in the cake walk. People have a lot of fun.”
