What's On This Weekend: Feb 3-5
You probably haven't heard (that was sarcasm), but two of the biggest local winter festivals are happening this weekend. There are promises of ice sculptures, hot chocolate and a whole smattering of fun activities for the kids that should be just the boost we need to make it until spring.
Also, I'm completely biased -- that's my little munchkin down there -- but I think you should go see The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Small-town theater doesn't get much cuter than this.
Enjoy the sunshine!
