The Holy Redeemer 50th Annual Bazaar started Wednesday, July 27 and will run through Saturday July 30. The excitement and fun begins nightly at 6 p.m. nightly and runs until 10 p.m. on the Holy Redeemer School grounds.
“Good weather brought a nice orderly crowd resulting in an enjoyable and successful first night of our bazaar,” said Holy Redeemer Parish pastor, Father Mark Thomas. He went on to say that “our 50th annual bazaar, like all of our past bazaars, always brings out a good hungry crowd that patronizes our popular food booth famous for serving a host of much loved and delicious fare including the original and best selling pepperoni puffs”.
The “Outside Kitchen” opens daily at 4 p.m. through 10 p.m. The menu features an excellent variety of sandwiches which include meatball, fish, sausage, eggplant and kielbasa/kraut sandwiches along with pizza and pizza greens
