The price of food has gone way up over the past year and it seems everywhere you go, you're paying more.
But that won't be the case at the upcoming Saint Patrick Parish festival later this week.

It is costing the church and the people who make the homemade food more to cook it up and serve it to this year's festival goers but parish leaders decided not to charge more for it.

Prices at this year's St. Patrick church festival in Hubbard will be the same as they were last year.
They say they wanted to do it as a small thank you to the community who has helped them move forward after the fire that swept through church building in January of last year.

"The festival helps fund all of the ministries in our church. It's the biggest fundraiser of the year because since the fire we aren't able to have our fish frys and some of the things we depended on to help fund our ministries," said Parish Deacon, John Bartos.

And the food here is a big deal.

"One the things that draw people here to the St. Patrick's festival is all of the homemade food at our food tent. We have homemade haluski, stuffed cabbage. We have the famous Father Mike's steak burgers. Avalon pizza. Everything is homemade by the people in the church," added Bartos.

Prices for the rides will also remain the same, Bartos said.

St. Pat's festival officially gets underway this Thursday and runs through Sunday night.
