Blessed Sacrament Fall Festival

Right down the street from Rockin on the Ridge, Blessed Sacrament church celebrated its annual fall festival today.

For 23 years now, this only Catholic church in Jonesboro has been serving up barbecue for the community.

Children have a good time as well.

The church says all the proceeds from today's event go back to the community.

((Robert Jones: The money is not the important part....obviously it's important...it's one of the reasons we do it....but the most important thing is the fellowship...the community spirit we build through the festival and the goodwill.))

If you missed today's Blessed Sacrament fall festival you'll have to wait until next years, but Rockin on the Ridge is still rockin and will be sounding off until 11:30 tonight.
