Winterfest goes well
By Lukas Lenke
Winter ball? No. Winterfest? Yes!
After the annual winter ball dance didn’t bringing out as many students as the student council hoped, Winterfest brought out more than 100 students. The first-ever Winterfest, party in the Commons, took place after the Perrysburg basketball team beat Anthony Wayne on Feb. 13.
Winterfest raised $1,500 with the objective to collect money for the American Heart Association, a non-profit national voluntary health agency. Winterfest provided free food, drinks, live music, and games to students.
Entertainment was provided by the live student band, which was a very refreshing idea. It was well put together and the musicians, consisting of Jack Barteck, Connor Treece, Henry Newberg, Alex Gallerno, and Max Steele played new and old popular hits which allowed everyone to jam while the several games like ping-pong, cornhole, or retro video games provided even more fun and entertainment.
Asking some students how they enjoyed the event, Ethan Bielefeld said, “It was less of a party than I expected, but overall it was fun.”
Student council was hopeful for a larger turnout than Winter Ball, a dance that many students have skipped in past years. Winterfest started right after the Jackets win, many students stayed.
A lot of money was raised for a good cause and students enjoyed the night. The event was more of a big lunch with live music rather than a real party.
It was still fun to hang out with friends and enjoy the numerous activities and food the event offered. It seemed like events like that are very much appreciated by the students. The student council and everyone else who organized and helped did a fantastic job.
