Borgia Fest opened Friday night and runs through Saturday at the St. Francis Borgia Regional High School campus.

The event will feature game booths, rides, live music and food.

New activities added this year include laser tag, an Agri-Land and an alumni Mass in the school theater Saturday at 6:30 p.m.

Former graduates also can stop by the Alumni Association tent and receive a free T-shirt this weekend.

The event was scheduled to run Friday from 4 to 11 p.m. and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Admission to the festival is free, but tickets must be purchased for the rides.

George Wingbermuehle, school president, said Borgia Fest is not about raising money, rather it’s a “friend-raiser” to bring alumni and their families, as well as the general community, to the school grounds.

Tours of the Catholic co-ed high school will be offered each day as well.

The Mr. Borgia Contest will again be held during the festival on Friday night.

The live entertainment was scheduled to kick off Friday with Borgia’s own gSilent G band from 4 to 7 p.m. followed by Dick and Jane from 7 to 11 p.m.

On Saturday, the Borgia Jazz Band will play from 2:30 to 4 p.m., followed by Schmitts & Grins from 4 to 7 p.m. and Sh-Boom from 7 to 11 p.m.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase both days. Food items include pulled pork, brats, hot dogs and barbecue hamburgers, as well as funnel cakes, kettle korn, Borgia cookies and Ted Drewes custard.

More information is available at and on the SFBRHS Facebook page.

Other activities being held in conjunction with Borgia Fest include the Melanoma for Mike walk and run, a three-on-three basketball tournament, and the Duane Haddox Memorial Three-on-Three Soccer Tournament, all Saturday morning.

A 2002 Jeep Wrangler and quilt will be raffled off during the event with the winners being announced at 10 p.m. Saturday. Winners do not need to be present to win.
