SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ  -- Blessed with drier weather on Sunday night, the St. Bart's Italian Festival had a successful third evening with the rides roaring, sausage and pepper sizzling and music by The Broadcasters playing.

Following Saturday night's washout, crowds came ready to eat, play games of skill and chance, and toast the summer of 2017.

The festival's Super 50/50 jackpot has now surpassed $20,000, and the winner will be drawn on Monday evening at 8 p.m.
