St. Alban’s Episcopal celebrates 153 years Fall Founders’ Festival kicks off Friday at Bovina church

Published 12:15 am Saturday, October 23, 2010

The last weekend of this month, St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Bovina will host its annual Fall Founders’ Festival, an event featuring a weekend of fun and fellowship.

The occasion will mark the 153rd anniversary of the founding of St. Alban’s, a lovely country church situated on Warriors Trail, six miles east of Vicksburg.

Activities will begin Friday evening as re-enactors and Boy Scouts set up camp on the grounds of the church. The re-enactors will be dressed in period costumes and will remain in camp throughout the weekend.
