Sacred Heart Catholic Church held its annual Settlement Festival, an event that dates all the way back to 1893. The 121-year-old festival's activities include a small petting zoo for children, some games, cookouts, and more.

Stephen Keller, a parishioner of Sacred Heart, talked a bit about what the festival means to the settlement.

"[We] celebrate fellowship, camaraderie... faith," Keller paused. "It's also a big fundraiser for the parish."

Other activities the festival featured included raffles and antique farm equipment on display.
