Stands for barbecue pork and mutton and drinks will be open for lines at the 141st St. Jerome Fancy Farm Picnic, set for Saturday, Aug. 7, at the St. Jerome picnic grounds in Graves County. The event is a fundraiser for the Catholic parish.

Last year’s St. Jerome Fancy Farm Picnic was perhaps its most subdued in its 140-year history. But for this coming First Saturday in August, organizers are prepping for the more typical environment with plenty of good food, fun and hot weather to rival the political rhetoric.

“I sure hope so,” said Andy Hayden, picnic chairman for this year’s 141st annual event, as he looked forward to next Saturday. “We’re definitely excited to be bringing a full picnic back, that’s for sure.”
