The show must go on. While a handful of churches and organizations canceled Fish Fry events on Friday anticipating crummier weather, Holy Name didn't miss a beat.
"We've never missed a Friday," said Tom Lahood.
On its best night, 2,800 people will come through the doors at the church located on Fontenelle Boulevard near Maple Street.
"Boom -- the door is open," said the pastor, who was expecting up to 1,000 people on this night.
Holy Name has become a tradition along with the deep-fried Alaskan Pollock, fries and slaw. It's also the longest running Fish Fry in the city.
