Thousands of Vietnamese Catholics gathered in Carthage for the final event of Marian Days.

Festivals goers flocked to the Mother Co-Redemptrix in Carthage Sunday morning asthe final mass took place.

Music could be heard from blocks away as choirs and songs of prayerfilled the streets to honor the virgin Mary.

The annual event draws in thousands from all across the country, sosafety is a priority for Carthage police department.

David Martin of the Carthage Police Department says "For as many people as we've had here, we've had very minor problems. I had a few missing children, arrested a couple for driving while intoxicated, and we've had a few drug arrests."

Martin says the next worry for Carthage Police is directing the flow of traffic once the mass concludes. He says the department will have officers stationed at major roadways around the festival so that buses and cars can continuously flow so there's little disturbance to traffic.
