It was a night of holiday cheer at Mercy Health - St. Rita's Medical Center as families came out for the 2018 Holiday Street Fair.

From the massive tree featuring hundreds of ornaments and thousands of lights to live animal displays and good old St. Nick, there was plenty to do at the hospital's annual event. Local schools provided live entertainment and cash and basket raffles raised money for St. Rita's 3D mammography services.

The fair was free and open to the public to give families an opportunity to spend some quality holiday time together.

"I think the most important thing I want people to know is, it's all about coming together as a community," said Administrative Fellow Annalisa Abell. "I think oftentimes we think about purchasing gifts and getting all the great deals, and I think it is important for people to be able to gift their kids with different gifts throughout the holiday season, but really coming together as a family and friends is the most important thing."

Earlier in the day they also held a holiday bazaar where folks could get some Christmas shopping done as well as try some tasty treats.
