This is the church and the school's biggest fundraiser which helps with the school's growing student population.

One family who came to the festival for the first time said they are glad they came because it definitely met their expectations.

“We were bored sitting at home and we just decided to get out of the house,” Emily Wooddruff, of Cridersville. “We’ve never been here before. We heard the wings were really good and we just wanted to come check it out and so far I think we’re having a good time.”

The festival will continue until June 9.
