Oktoberfest

This must have been the day for fall festivals.  Here in E-town, we had what must have been the second annual Fall Fun Day at the fire hall.  Games for kids of all ages, a chili cook-off, pie judging, think that was about it.  Since the boss was in charge of the chili cook-off, I got to work the early shift.  I thought at Least I would get a bit of chili whwn she returned after the event was over.

After work, I was invited to go to a corn maze that is right outside of E-town which I had no idea had been going on for the past few years.  Heck, I had no idea there was a campground just outside town.  Unfortunately for us, the rain decided to hold off until our band of maze venturers found ourselves lost and then made our way back to the starting point… somehow.

After I went to church, I headed over to the county airport where the theatre was holding its first annual Oktoberfest.  Great fun, GReat food, FANTASTIC band (sorry I missed the polka), just a great time.  Happily, the rather dismal weather did not dispel a rather sizable crowd from attending.  I thought the turn out was really great.  It will be interesting to find out how much we raised.  I was really excited to see Peg there helping out.  She really is making her presence known in the theatre.  GOOD FOR HER!  Be sure to catch her in her stage debut when the WCCT presents Little Shop of Horrors October 9-11 and 15-18 (think there is a Thursday night show the second week).  Break a leg all!

I must say that I have heard good things about the Junk Yard Band but they are fabulous.  Playing everything from the 60s to the 80s.  Really fun music.  Mom and Dad 2 were there, too keeping us in stitches.  I participated in the So, You Think You Can Dance (Or as I clearly have state… I don’t think… I KNOW I CAN’T DANCE) contest getting a 28 out of a possible 30 points.  Personally, I think the last judge was rotten to the core but that’s just me.

Ok… off to bed so I can be fresh as a daisy for work at 9.  No rehearsal til Monday.  Must be that good.

  1. 28 out of 30 in a dancing contest? Better change what you wrote to “I thought I knew I couldn’t dance but it turns out I really can after all!”

    I am the one who can’t dance by the way. 😉

  2. Sounds like fun… I see the Fest is on the front page of the paper – well, online edition, anyway. Glad to see the weather didn’t ruin the turnout.
