St. Joseph Orphans’ Picnic August 9
How many opportunities do you have to enjoy a real southern chicken dinner at a picnic in one of the city’s prettiest communities? Perhaps just one per year, at the St. Joseph Orphans’ Picnic. This year, it’s on August 9 and it’s got too many fun-filled events to ignore.
More than 60 gaming booths will be set up at the picnic, so there’s enough excitement to keep every member of the family entertained. There’s also a giant cake booth that’s impossible to miss. The chicken dinner will begin service at noon, so come early because food is served until it runs out (or until the event ends at 11 pm).
This event is so big, around 50,000 people show up each year on average. And while you’re there, you’ll be helping the community. All proceeds from the picnic support St. Joe’s kids. Buy a handmade quilt from the St. Joseph Sewing Society while you’re there. During the event, $15,000 in prizes will be given away.
St. Joseph’s Children’s Home is at 2823 Frankfort Avenue. You’ll find parking at the back of the property.
