QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Families headed down to the Knights of Columbus in Quincy for the "end-of-summer" barbecue.

The picnic kicked off Thursday with carnival rides, food and games.

Families came early today because of the great food and cheaper tickets on the rides. Coordinators said it's a great way to bring the community together.  

"It's something that at the end of the year a lot of Quincy residents and Adams County Residents like to get together and see people they haven't seen in awhile," said Chuck Venvertloh with Knights of Columbus. "A lot of college kids like to get together before they head back to school for the year. It's a good chance for everyone to see people they haven't in awhile." 

This is their largest fundraiser of the year.
