PHOTOS: St. Roch Feast is a Chickahominy Tradition

Barbecue, guitars, art, musical bands, funnel cakes, and rides have one thing in common, you can find them all at this year’s St. Roch Feast. Each year, St. Roch parish hosts an annual feast in the Chickahominy section of Greenwich.

The Feast, began at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday at St. Roch Church, on 10 St. Roch St., across Hamilton Avenue School, and continues through the weekend. It’s always great to see community spirit, people working together, and having a great time.
