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.



 FILE - This Feb. 9, 2013 file surveillance photo provided by the FBI shows 73-year-old Walter Unbehaun, an ex-convict from Rock Hill., S.C., during a bank robbery in Niles, Ill. Unbehaun allegedly told investigators he intended to get caught so he could live his final years behind bars. On Thursday, April 17, 2014, Unbehaun is scheduled to be sentenced in Chicago. In 50 years, he has spent just six out from behind bars. His case highlights a wider societal dilemma about what to do with an increasingly elderly ex-cons, many of whom spent so much of their lives inside prison that they, like Unbehaun, can't cope with life on the outside.
