Fall Festival


St. Stephens’ Royal Court: 1st Princess Madison David, Duchess Anaiz Delgado, King Konner Ninh, Queen Leila Parvimjah and 2nd Princess Alynne Wong were honored during the parish’s annual Fall Festival held on October 9 for selling the highest amount of sponsorships or raffle tickets.

This year’s theme was “Passport to Unity” an International Festival.

The event featured an international food court, a beer garden, a raffle booth, booths that offered plants, gifts and miscellaneous goods for sale, live entertainment, face painting, game booths, a moon bounce and a giant slide.
