Saturday, August 26th, 2017 marked the 4th Annual re-kindled AdaFest. Thousands turned out for downtown activities and evening family activities on East Central University's Centennial Plaza.
Activities were sponsored by local business and organizations both in Ada and from around Pontotoc County.
Candidate for Oklahoma State House of Representatives, Danny Manuel was present at AdaFest 2017 sponsoring a full-scale obstacle course for kids to play on at Juliana Park.
In addition to allowing kids to have fun playing on the obstacles, Danny was able to engage with many eligible voters from around Ada and Pontotoc County. Friends of Daniel Manuel 2018 estimates about 450 total constituents were reached during the festivities.
"I was surprised by, the number of people whom I personally knew were either staunch Republican or at best anti-Democrat that walked up to Danny and said they were voting for him." said Jerreck McWilliams, a local Democrat that came out to volunteer for Danny and the Pontotoc County Democrats at AdaFest.
"I believe that's due to him having already spent his life in service to the people of our county and is now spreading a message of people over politics," added McWilliams.
Friends of Daniel Manuel 2018 is very optimistic and looking forward to AdaFest 2018 next summer.
