There's going to be the Clay County Pals, are going to do their pizza party, they have that every year at Pizza Ranch and she said they're doing something new this year which is exciting. Bethany Lutheran is going to be in Adventure Staffing. They're going to be making blankets they give away to people who need them. They're going to have popcorn and some treats inside too. So the windows will both be busy then go inside and get some popcorn. We're going to have three different ice sculptures. It starts literally with a block of ice and then the artists are going to take a chainsaw and carve out something."
