Did You Try the Pie?

Were you at the 2017 Wheat Festival? This year, Okawville’s annual Wheat Fest was held on September 15-17 in Okawville’s Community Park. Luckily, the weather wasn’t too bad over the important and fun weekend. It didn’t rain that much during the Wheat Fest weekend and it didn’t get hotter than 90 degrees. On Saturday, the talent show took place on the stage in the park. The 2017 talent show started with a group dance the Miss Okawville candidates prepared. Also, the Junior Miss Okawville candidates sang a song together for the show. The talent show ended with the OHS Drama Club performing part of an act from their upcoming play, The Dead Man’s Chest. Tickets for the play were being sold at Wheat Fest, and tickets will be on sale until October 8th. Sunday was the last day of Wheat Fest and the day Okawville’s parade took place. Hopefully, you tried a piece of the homemade pie made by your fellow students. The Timepiece ran a pie stand all weekend to benefit the school’s yearbook. It was a busy weekend for Okawville and everyone who went to Wheat Fest, especially for the teachers and students. Therefore, there was no school on Monday. A lot of people came to Wheat Fest and the parade and hopefully everyone had fun and enjoyed themselves.
