It's Spring Break Week, meaning it's Poteau Wood Bat Festival time; Festival moved up to a Wednesday start due to threatening weather

March 19, 2013

It's Spring Break Week, and you know what that means if you're a baseball fan — especially a Poteau Pirate fan. It's Poteau Wood Bat Festival time again.
The event, which was originally slated to begin its three-day run on Thursday, has been moved up to a Wednesday start due to the threat of bad weather later this week.
The complete schedule is listed at the bottom of the column.
