The Townview Oktoberfest is a version of the German Oktoberfest. Our version promotes cultural awareness and creates a festive event for the student body, faculty, and staff. This event provides a School Carnival-like atmosphere, with both booths for selling different foods and for playing challenging games. Our Oktoberfest also includes a Talent Show. Townview will experience a plethora of foods, American, Latin and European, and other ethnic culture, attire, and talent in a school-wide Fall festival type of atmosphere. This event can be considered as a sort of “Pep Rally” that will show pride in our individual schools and organizations as well as our whole school.
Talent Show: The talent show, first of all, is open to all students and staff at Townview. It is our intent to have a wide variety of talent. For example, we plan to have vocal, instrumental, dance, jazz, folk, R&B, Tejano, hip hop, Gospel, tap, rap, etc. If any genre has been left out, you can help make the list complete by encouraging talents that you know of, or hear of, to audition. Teachers and administrators are welcome to show their stuff too. We had Cat Daddy from K104 to emcee the show last year and the students really enjoyed the interaction with him and the other K104 staff members that were a part of the show. Audition information will be on the video monitors and announcements.
Date: Friday,Oct. 24th 2:45-4:15 pm.
Place: Commons (Booth Space)
Patio (Talent Show: 3:00-4:10) Tickets will be sold for this event by the Big “D” Band
Booth Rental: $20 which includes 3 permits for student workers (for student organizations)
