OCEAN CITY, Md.- St. Peter's Lutheran Church is holding their Peach Festival again this year on Thursday. 

The event began 23 years ago as a simple ice cream social. It has expanded to include face painting, food, games and of course, peaches! Peaches can be bought in bushels or bags or made into smoothies and peach ice cream. 

Funds raised from the Peach Festival will benefit the church's bills.

The festival begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m.

On Friday, the flea market will remain open from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
