Kid-size bowling and a giant inflatable slide were just two attractions at St.
Columban's Octoberfest Sunday afternoon on the church grounds. Festivities included bingo, a cake walk, flea market and live entertainment as well as games for kids. In addition to the bowling and the slide, children could ride a train around the grounds, go fishing for prizes, take a pony ride, climb a rock wall and jump around in a bounce house. A baby contest was also held.
Bingo was a popular activity for some people who attended St.
Columban's Octoberfest Sunday afternoon. The day also included live entertainment by the
Bonderer, Case and Clark Band and lots of games and activities for children.
