Immaculate Conception School in Macon held its annual Oktoberfest on Sunday, September 4. Oktoberfest began with a welcome and opening prayer followed by the first and second grade singing the National Anthem. Other entertainment included Maples Repertory Theatre, third and fourth grade singing, a new ICS Show Choir giving a performance, and the Macon State Highway Patrol K-9 Demonstrations.
Oktoberfest also featured games for the children such as a basketball shoot, bounce house, Coke ring toss, hay maze and quarter drop. Food such as pulled pork sandwiches, homemade chili and vegetable soup, popcorn and cotton candy were on hand for purchase. There were also several booths set up with unique wares for sell.
According to Kim Keune from ICS, “The proceeds from Oktoberfest are used for general maintenance and the upkeep of the school. Also, if the classrooms would have a need for something (smart board, books or equipment), then Home & School would be able to help financially.
