  • Rolla is not the only town celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this weekend. Waynesville is planning to do it in style down on the square Saturday.
    Waynesville is “Going Green” for St. Patrick’s Day with the latest Route 66 Fest on the town square.
    The event promises to be a very family friendly outing with good weather and a chance to see what the local area has to offer. The weatherman is promising weather in the high 70’s with a chance for showers to pop up here and there, but not last long and Waynesville is having the festival rain or shine.
    Attendees can enter a karoake contest or win a prize for being the most green, stuff their faces with traditional Irish foods like corned beef and cabbage or visit one of the downtown businesses for special deals just for the day.
    The kids won’t be bored because there will be plenty for them to do including a bungee run, bouncy house, pony rides, coloring, painting, a neat science project, the kid’s corner and a chance to check out Waynesville Rural Fire Department’s fire truck.
    Those who make it to the fest will get a chance to hear local high school students perform in their band, Sons of Ireland.
    The Old Stagecoach Stop will be open, as well, offering a craft for the kids and a chance for attendees to tour the stop.
    In honor of the theme “Going Green,” there will be around 40 vendors who will be keeping with the theme, offering homemade goods and other green items.
    Finally, attendees will not leave the event hungr. If they haven’t already filled up on corned beef and cabbage, they can try the barbeque, cotton candy, burgers, hot dogs, chili, pies and a whole host of desserts,
