“Brown paper packages tied up with strings, these are a few of my favorite things!”
A few of my other favorite things just so happen to be right here…nestled between Wasilla and Hatcher Pass right next to the Little Susitna River. It’s a quiet seven mile drive on Wasilla Fishhook then down a country road named Welch and there is the cutest little log cabin church you have ever seen!
Every year the faithful parishioners set up to have a neighborhood gathering filled with delicious homemade bratwursts from the church’s own butcher, the loveliest Sweet Shoppe filled to the brim with tasty treats and since the baker is gluten free herself, she takes joy in baking for everyone! There is Old Fizzywigs where the matron mixes up her batches of homemade Alaskan syrups to create delicious soda pops and root beer floats for kids and adults to enjoy. Let your children pet the animals in the petting zoo as long as they like, get their face painted by the local artisan and they can even enjoy the Kiddie Corral filled with all sorts of merriment (including a bouncy house!)
There are fun old school style carnival games for the big kids too like the ring toss, chicken fling, balloon darts and a prize booth to boot! Participate in the potato sack race, the tug-of-war, or perhaps the pie eating contest is your preference. There is plenty of seating on their lovely quilt covered hay bales and adorable bistro chairs. You mom’s might want to bring your pocket book because their Trading Post is full of great deals on used items and full of handmade goodness from the creative ladies of the parish, if you forget cash, there is an ATM on site. Don’t forget the food booth filled with locally made brats and the most delicious gyros in town. You’ll be sure to make this an annual affair you won’t want to miss! Hope to see you there on Saturday, May 31st from 11am-5pm. It truly is A Festival of Food, Games, Prizes and Family Fun!
