Friday night is Fish Fry night in Bessemer. If you're in the mood for fish, visit one of several local establishments and enjoy their wonderful fish fry.

On Saturday, begin your day with a hearty pumpkin pancake breakfast at the St. Sebastian School (regular pancakes are available too). The St. Sebastian Knights of Columbus fire up the griddle from 7 - 11 a.m.
