In what has become an annual tradition in Brick, the Church of Epiphany will kick off its Italian Festival on Thursday, ushering in several nights of food, rides and fun.
The festival will be held Aug. 18 to Aug. 21 on the church grounds, which are located at 615 Thiele Road (just off Herbertsville Road). The event will run from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. each night.
The festival offers free parking, nightly live entertainment, a food court featuring aisles of Italian dishes, a beer and wine garden, arcade games, rides, vendors and much more. Mary’s Prayer Garden will also be open.
Thursday night is unlimited ride wristband night, and pre-sale ride tickets are available in the parish office.
The annual festival marks the Roman Catholic Feast of the Assumption.
