The 73rd St Ann's Family Fair kicks off next Thursday September 23rd and runs through the 26th. The Carnival will open on Thursday and run through Sunday.

Friday night St Ann's Fair is doing things a little bit different by hosting a free concert. Shane Smith and the Saints will be performing at the fair. This will be a FREE show for everyone of all ages. This never happens, a free show, count me in. The show will be on the grounds of St Ann's school. You will be allowed to bring chair and blankets to sit on. No coolers or outside food and drinks will be allowed.

Go out to the fair on Friday for the FREE concert with Shane Smith and the Saints and then head back down to St Ann's on Saturday for a day full of fun, food and family.  In typical fair style their will be food booths everywhere. One of my favorite things about the St Ann's Fair is bingo. Bingo at the St Ann's Fair has the best prizes to give away.

The sole purpose of the fair is to raise money for St. Ann's Catholic School.

Mission: St. Ann's Catholic School joins with families to form students' faith, knowledge, and character.

St Ann's School serves students pre-school through 8th grade. They provide not only academics but athletic sports as well, like football, basketball, volleyball and more.

Don't miss the 73rd St Ann's Family Fair, on the grounds of St Ann's School (on Texas and Illinois streets) in Midland, September 23rd-26th. You especially don't want to miss the free show with Shane Smith and The Saints.
