St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church is gearing up to hold its second annual Spring Palooza event.
The event, which serves as a fundraiser for the church, is set for May 17 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on the church grounds at 300 S. Tarver Ave. in Lebanon behind Cumberland University.
Jenny Bennett said the event is free and open for the entire community and would be fun for the whole family.
“Last year, the Palooza was a big hit,” Bennett said.
According to Bennett, the day’s festivities will consist of food, games, prizes and wonderful entertainment for all ages.
“We’ll have inflatables and games, and we’ll also have people from our parish doing music and dancing,” Bennett said. “We also have a large Hispanic population from different Latin countries who have beautiful costumes and will perform festive dances from their native countries, as well.”
Bennett said those from their Hispanic community would also serve native foods like tamales and tacos.
Additionally, she said hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, snow cones, popcorn and more would also be available at the event. Bennett said the first 100 children would receive a coupon for a free Zaxby’s Kid’s Meal.
Along with food sales and games and entertainment, there will also be a bake sale and silent auction help raise funds.
The Spring Palooza event is also set to raise money for the church, which is in the midst of its campaign to build a new church.
“We’re still plugging away trying to get our new church built,” Bennett said. “We’ve been at it for a year as of April, but we still need around $170,000 to break ground.”
All proceeds from the event will go toward the church’s building fund.
