Pageants, talent highlight Pow Wow Days


On Saturday, the day was full of things to do. One of the most popular things every year is the parade that goes downtown Moweaqua. The parade consisted of many students from Central A&M and other Moweaqua residence throwing candy to the public. It also had people networking their businesses trying to get more publicity.

The Decatur Park Singers were the main event for the night from 7-9 p.m. The singers performed any kind of Broadway music, but added their own twist to the song which made the song performances more than just a cover.

The main event for the whole weekend was the Talent Contest. There were four different categories for the competition, ages 0-11, ages 12-18, miscellaneous, and the adult division.

In the 0-11 division, Cody Manley took home third place with his piano playing. The first and second place finishers were sisters. Singers Alana Cutler took home second place and Alexis Cutler took home first place.

In the 12-18 category, Oliva Jordan took home third place. Kyler Gebert took home second place. The winner of the division was Madison Garner. All three participants sang a song for the crowd.

In the Miscellaneous division there were only four participants. Though, Justin Beck won third place after playing a song on his guitar. Drake Grubb took home second place after doing hunting noises, and Luke Besser won first place. Besser just recently had ACL surgery and was standing on one leg while on stage playing the guitar and harmonica, and singing “Wagon Wheel” made famous by Darius Rucker.

In the final category the adults finally got their turn to show off their talents. Rachel Snider took home third place. Amanda Collins took home second place with her song by Adele. Justin Bankley won the adult division with a country song.
