|The anthropomorphic dancing sausage greeted us at the gate.|
Turns out it is a huge fundraiser for one of the local parochial schools (turns out Christ is King is the name of the school, not a local church). The website for the school claimed that over 30,000 people were expected to attend and that the money raised accounted for 10% of their yearly budget. Based on how many people were there, I would believe it.
|Whoa! This is one crowded Sausage Fest.|
It was totally worth the price of admission (free) and although we didn't hit up any of the carnival games, we did partake at the various food stands and went to the beer garden (complete with the sounds of the band 'Smooth as Jazz'. "We're not jazz, but we're smooth as.") Because if anything says hot Friday night, it's the words 'drinking beer in an elementary school'.
|That's a big wiener!|
