Downtown Goshen Inc. is urging home and business owners and volunteers to help shovel sidewalks downtown ahead of Friday’s Fire and Ice Festival.

The festival features ice carvers sculpting on the sidewalks in front of downtown businesses.

To be able to move freely on the sidewalks with 15,600 pounds of ice Friday, Jan. 3, DGI is asking for help clearing the sidewalks.

There is also a safety concern for festival-goers regarding sidewalks that are not cleared.

DGI requests Goshen residents and business owners to shovel the sidewalks in front of downtown businesses and homes at 4 p.m. Thursday and again at 9 a.m. Friday.

They also request that businesses sponsoring an ice block not put down salt in front of their store. Salt will prevent the ice blocks from adhering to the sidewalk.

The five were being held on various charges including attempted murder and armed robbery. It's unclear how the men, who are believed to be gang members, escaped from the jail. Authorities say all five men should be considered armed and dangerous. (AP Photo/Madera County Jail)
