St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church drew large crowds to its festive Mardi Gras in the Park event over the weekend.

The event raises money through a taco dinner, silent auctions, food, children’s games, meat and alcohol raffles and other activities.

A “Jurassic in the Park” theme was evident in decorations and volunteers’ outfits.
