Christ King Parish Festival Returns on June 22 & 23

June 14, 2012

The Christ King Parish Festival is gearing up for a fifth weekend of good food, great fun and lots of laughter. This year’s Festival is set for June 22 and 23 at Christ King Parish on the corner of 92nd and Center streets in Wauwatosa. There will be games for young and old, great music and fellowship for one and all. The fun begins at 3pm on Friday, June 22 and continues until 10pm. On Saturday, June 23, the Festival hours are 11am to 10pm.

The Festival will start on a sweet note with the return of the Cake Off, a cake decorating contest. Your creation could be judged Best of the Fest! We’re calling all bakers with decorating skills to submit their sweet creations on Friday, June 22 from 9-11am in the Parish Center. Cakes will be judged from 12-1pm, with 1st through 3rd place winners in the Kid, Teen and Adult categories winning Festival tickets. Cakes and cupcakes submitted will be used as prizes for the popular Cake Walk game.

Attention all teens: the iTeen Tent will be shuffling great tunes all weekend. Get your groove on, play Ping Pong, hang out. It’s all good. At 6pm on Friday on the Main Stage, we’ll have an iMusic Dance Party with the best playlist in town. Grab your friends and get ready to dance!

The Annual Fund Raffle is back with great prizes for a great cause. Tickets will be sold throughout the day Friday and Saturday. Prizes will be on display on the Festival grounds. The winners will be drawn Saturday, June 23 at 8pm, and you do not need to be present to win. All proceeds will benefit the Annual Fund at Christ King School, helping families provide a quality Catholic education for their children. Back by popular demand is the 50/50 Raffle, where the lucky winner will split the cash kitty with the parish. You don't have to be present to win, but you can't win if you don't play! The lucky day's winner will be drawn nightly at 7:45pm.

Our music line-up is second to none, with live bands and performances all weekend. Headlining Friday night on the Main Stage will be Dr. Woo, beginning at 8pm. On Saturday, the cast of Annie, Jr. from Christ King Middle School will perform at 3pm, followed by popular teen band (and Christ King School alumni) Third Wheel at 5pm. Singer-songwriter Paul Rebek performs at 6pm, bringing back his popular acoustic stylings. Mystery Train will rock into the night starting at 8pm. Check out the performance schedule on the Christ King Parish Festival page on Facebook for all the details.

We've got games planned for all ages, including inflatables that let adults get in on the action! The Super Slide will plunge daredevils down a 24’ drop. Kids’ Bingo is back- kids can play Bingo at the School Spirit Tent throughout the day June 22 and 23. There are also plenty of games to test your mettle, from ring toss to the fishie pond. Test your speed at the football, baseball or frisbee toss games, or show off your concentration on the miniature golf course. Don't miss the arts & crafts tent for face painting and other creative fun.

Food? Oh, yeah, we've got you covered. From roasted corn to brats and burgers to Al’s Famous Tacos, sweet treats and more, you'll find what you want to satisfy your craving, with MillerCoors products to wash it all down. On Saturday, Dr. Dawg’s amazing hot dog cart will be there to make hot dogs any way you like. Yum!

There's something for everyone at the Christ King Parish Festival. Admission is FREE, and we'll be waiting for you! Join us June 22 and 23 at 92nd and Center Streets, Wauwatosa.
