NEWTON TWP. — Food. Raffles. Bingo. Children’s games. Books. Antiques. Bargains. Live Music.
It’s a good thing the Annual Country Bazaar, hosted by Our Lady of the Snows Parish at the Church of Saint Benedict on Newton Ransom Boulevard, is a three-day event, because taking it all in during a single evening is not an easy task.
In addition to the bazaar’s traditional tents and activities, this year’s event featured a “Garden of Light and Hope,” comprised of hundreds of luminaries, which were decorated by parishioners with short messages in memoriam and of prayer and inspiration.
