LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — St.Boniface’s German Fest 2019 has come and gone. The Festival has been a staple in the community for the past 14-years.
The event brought everything from live music, dancing, and food all showcasing the German culture.
Father Tim Alkire of St.Boniface said it welcomes everyone.
The festival helps raise money for the church while providing activities for the community to enjoy.
Father Alkire said it wasn’t one to miss.
“Don't be surprised if you see nuns doing polkas, do not be surprised if you see priests out here dressed in our German attire. It's just a, it should be a time of great joy for everybody tonight,” said Alkire. “Hope you can all come the weather is perfect here.”
Last year the festival was canceled because of bad weather. Father Alkire said he has great expectations for this year's fundraising.
“We didn't make very much money last year and we had to play it very, very close to the bone this past year but hopefully this is going to be a really good time, fun time, successful time for everybody this year. Everybody's welcomed,” said Alkire.
This is the only fundraising event the church puts on for the year.
