in Seaford held its 36th annual Family Festival from July 11-15.
Musical groups who performed during the festival were Risky Business, Sheer Magic, The Attic, Storm, and the Boston Burglars. The fair featured a variety of rides and food such as philly cheesesteaks, sausage and peppers, turkey burgers, pizza from in Seaford, and zeppoles. There was also a 50/50 raffle each night of the festival with the grand prize being a hybrid Toyota Prius.
The festival is organized in large part by parishioners and church leaders who volunteer their time to help out.
"This is my 10th year working the St. William the Abbot Festival my whole family is working this year," said Ginny Ritter, a St. William parishioner and Massapequa resident. "I feel it's a good way to give back to St. Williams and have fun while doing it."
"It's a great tradition that brings together the community and it helps support the work of the parish," said Father Bob Hayden, pastor of St. William the Abbot Church.
