Kiowa’s Octoberfest is on Halloween
By Aimee Bryan
The Gyp Hill Premiere
The annual Octoberfest on Kiowa’s Main Street is on Sunday, October
31st and is sure to kick off your Halloween adventures with a bang.
Events will start at 2 P.M. The grills and smokers will be fired up
for the Chamber of Commerce’s yearly meat cook off, sponsored by
SCTelcom. In case you’re up for some healthy competition the three
categories are ribs, pulled meat, and other. If you have questions,
call Shawna Schupbach. The meat must be turned in at 4 P.M. to be
judged. Typically each year a line starts to form much before that
and you walk away with a lot more than you expect. Its accompanied
with potatoes, baked beans, and a roll for $5 a plate. It's
absolutely the most delicious meal you can get on a Sunday in Kiowa.
There will be pumpkin bowling, face painting, carnival style games,
sidewalk chalk contest, pumpkin decorating and halloween costume
contests. Some stores will be open to shop in and vendors are
welcome to join the atmosphere and set up on the sidewalks.
As spooky music tunes fill the air, you can meander the downtown
area visiting with all your friends and family. You never know what
neat treat might be served and you can finish the evening off by
trick-or-treating in favorite neighborhoods. It sounds like a
perfect Barber County Halloween with food, friends, family, and lots
