JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Saint Richard Catholic School and church celebrate a Fall Fun Fest on an almost summer like day.
Dozens of families enjoyed a warm afternoon during the 12th Annual Fun Fest. Long lines formed for snow cones and to take a turn on the bungee jump and other activities. For the first time the street in front of the school was blocked off and transformed into a carnival atmosphere.
"We attend this school and we're a part of the church and just come out to have some fun. It's a beautiful day, great fall weather, ride a few rides and eat some snacks."
"This year we really brought it together in a big block party. The first time we've don it in this fashion, first time we've had vendors and rides, and it's just a big fall celebration"
Organizers hope the fund raiser brings in at least $25,000.
