A community performance concluded Waynesfield’s WinterFest, and to many area locals, it was the highlight of the weekend.
“This is our community festival,” WinterFest chair and theatre producer Pat Noykos said, noting how this year’s Winterfest crowd has been the largest to date. “We try to diversify to try to get something for everybody.”
This year’s theatre play, “Nick Tickle, Fairy Tale Detective,” presented by WG Muchinippi Community Theatre, captured the attention of children and adults, alike.
While wandering the halls of Cridersville Elementary School Friday morning it could have easily been mistaken for Halloween.

WAYNESFIELD— The Muchinippi WinterFest took place on Saturday, March 8, and for the first time, all events were held on the same day, with the exception of an encore performance of the community play “Nick Tickle, Fairy Tale Detective” on Sunday.
WinterFest, which has been a two-day event in the past, is a community activity that raises funds to support W-G organizations such as the Muchinippi Community Theater, academic boosters, music boosters, the cross country team, the W-G sophomore class and the Deb Boday Memorial Scholarship Fund.
