This year’s Festival will be full of activities that will entertain all ages.
On Saturday at The Youth Center (201 W. Market St, across from City Hall) there will be an Ice Cream Eating Contest, sponsored by DQ Grill and Chill and special activities for children, sponsored by the YMCA Whitley County. On Sunday “chili experts” will be able to compete in the third annual Chili Cook Off, sponsored by the Senior Center. A Craft Bazaar with a variety of vendors will also be taking place on Saturday and Sunday at the Youth Center.
Block carvings will once again be available to be sponsored by businesses, individuals or organizations. The cost to sponsor an ice carving is $175 for one block of ice. Multi-block carvings and other sponsorships are also available, so contact the Chamber for pricing. The ice carvings and sponsorship information will remain on the Courthouse lawn or at the business for as long as the sculpture lasts. Please contact the Chamber office at 248-8131 to reserve blocks of ice or for information regarding sponsorships. Deadline to register is January 8, 2010.
