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.
Kicking off at 7 a.m. with a waffle and sausage breakfast benefiting the W-G sophomore class, WinterFest ran all day with various events, prizes, games and entertainment on display throughout the W-G Local Schools building.
The middle school gym was a favorite spot for younger children, featuring a large blow-up racing slide, bouncing house, race car simulator and several other kids games. Across the hall, the W-G School Library was open for the book fair.
