A wide variety of food will be available so come with a hearty appetite.  For those of you in town on Thursday, stop by Bessemer American Legion Post #27 for a spaghetti dinner.

Friday night is Fish Fry night in Bessemer. If you're in the mood for fish, visit one of several local establishments and enjoy their wonderful fish fry.

On Saturday, begin your day with a hearty pumpkin pancake breakfast at the St. Sebastian School (regular pancakes are available too). The St. Sebastian Knights of Columbus fire up the griddle from 7 - 11 a.m.

If shopping makes you hungry, food booths will be set up all along Sophie Street. Stop by for a snack while you shop.

While perusing the many craft booths at A.D. Johnston High School, visit the Junior class concession stand located outside the gym.
