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.
“It’s just silly fun,” Noykos said. “Somebody steals all the different props from the fairy tales so that nothing can happen, and the main one is Goldie Locks — she’s bored doing the same story over and over again, so she’s messing up everyone else’s stories, too.”
