St. Teresa of Avila Festival

8

As parking lot festivals go, St. Teresa of Avila’s is pretty classy thanks to its 94-year-old church building. This west side beaut—a mashup of Spanish Revival and Italian Romanesque Revival complete with ornate archways and columns, terra cotta roof tiles, and a bell tower—looms over a tent city of food vendors (Hello, Holy Grail West!), kiddie games (Wii Dance!), and crafty activities (sand art!). This year’s edition of the annual fest also happens to be a centennial celebration, so get your kid’s face painted, take your chances at the Elder High School hockey team’s slap shot booth, hoist a cherry slushie, and gobble down some LaRosa’s pizza for a good, old-fashioned Cincinnati summer night. 1175 Overlook Ave., West Price Hill, stteresa-avila.org
