Posted: Nov 4, 2018 12:19 AM

(ST. JOSEPH, Mo) A local catholic church held its annual fall festival today. It's a tradition that goes back more than a century.

St. Mary's catholic church held its 127th annual fall festival today. The event featured all kinds of fun and games for kids, as well as raffles and silent auctions for the adults.

The festival is raising money for much-needed repairs to the church's unique stained-glass windows

"The windows haven't been renovated or they haven't been solid through several years,"  Mary Beattie, festival co-chair, said.  "We're afraid that one of these days, they're gonna blow out."

Hamburger soup, chili and hot dogs were on the menu as well as an assortment of desserts.
The co-chairs both said parishioners keep the festival going by raising up to $7,000 each year.

Just a little bit more sunshine today across northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. The air quality is much better today with the haze starting to clear out of the area. Tonight will be cool and calm with lows in the mid 60s and light winds. There is a slight chance for isolated showers tonight and tomorrow afternoon, although most of the area should stay dry. Dry and sunny conditions continue into the weekend as temperatures start to warm up again. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and then start to climb into the 90s as we head into the weekend.
