St. Antonius Coptic Orthodox Church in Hayward, California, held the King Tut Festival, which offered Egyptian food, music and games. The event was a key fundraiser for the parish.

There were also tours of the church facility, founded in 1976. The church is raising money for a 16,000 square-foot youth center that will include a chapel and a gym.

The Coptic church near me has a similar thing. I remember driving by and seeing a giant pharaoh bean bag toss. Very funny.
