Pageants, talent highlight Pow Wow Days

The 34th annual Moweaqua Pow Wow was yet again full of food, carnival rides for all ages, and entertainment for anyone who wanted to sit and enjoy the beautiful weather. This year’s Pow Wow theme was “Where Old and New Friends Meet”.

On Thursday, the main entertainment was the pageant contests and a musical performance by Battle Creek Band.

In the Little Miss pageant contest, the first runner up was Kenzie Sloan and the winner and new 2013 Little Miss was Paige Simmons. Simmons is the 17th participant to win this award.

In the Junior Miss pageant contest, the second runner up was Hannah Stephens and the first runner up was Sidney Sloan. The new 2013 Junior Miss was Riley Wilson.

The final pageant contest was for the Miss Pow Wow 2013 Queen. Last year’s queen, Abby Burgener took part in hosting the competition by asking the participants questions. Second runner up was Ashley Newman and first runner up was Ashley Baczkowski. The winner and new Miss Pow Wow Queen was Rylee Wildt.

On Friday, the main entertainment was the Rock of Ages Band. The Band performed any kind of classic rock music from the 70s and 80s. One song they played was “Don’t Stop Believin”, a popular song made famous by the band Journey.

Friday and Saturday are also the main days that people come out and enjoy the festivities and catch up with old friends.

An old Moweaqua resident, Tina McStoots, came back to the Pow Wow for the first time in eight years. She said it was weird at first coming back, because it was the first time she had been back to the Pow Wow since her mother, Wilma Shelato, died.

“As soon as I saw an old friend I was okay. It felt right and I’m happy I came back.” McStoots said.
