Autumn festival

Submitted By Fr. Norman Segovia and Riza Santoro

St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, Milpitas, invites parishioners, friends and neighbors to its sixth annual Autumn Festival from Friday, September 24 to Sunday, September 26. The family event has something for everyone - culinary delights, including BBQ, hamburgers, Indian, Vietnamese, Filipino, Mexican, Italian, plus beer, wine, arts and crafts, games, carnival rides, silent auction, rummage sale, local artists, bingo and Extravaganza Raffle with a first prize of $10,000 and live music. Joey Jam's Love Stoned, featuring Carla Blackwell, will perform on September 25. Admission and parking are free.

The three-day event has a magical atmosphere. The Festival, spread across several venues, brings together members of the Milpitas community to celebrate and share their cultural diversity.

Designated, free parking can be found in the Serra Shopping Center at Serra Way and Abel Street.

There will be a ticket booth on Abel Street selling Carnival Tickets which are valid only for Midway of Fun rides, concessions and games. The St. John's Information and Ticket Booth can be found in the parking lot, which will accommodate foods, games, eating area and stage. The booth will sell tickets only for St. John's attractions - pancake breakfast, barbecue combo, Extravaganza Raffle Booklet, rummage sale purchases, free souvenir program. Pavalkis Hall is the venue for Bingo, silent auctions and other activities. The cost of food and games will be posted on each booth. Tickets for all events are available for purchase before the Festival.
