After snow Wednesday night and Thursday evening, there is a bit of a break on Friday and Saturday before another storm on Sunday.  Take advantage of the weather for outdoor activities like Saturday’s Ice Fishing Derby at Independence Lake and the Ice Carving Festival at County Farm Park. Then on Sunday, enjoy the snowy weather while you Hunt for the Yeti at Rolling Hills County Park.

This is also a weekend for theater. Pioneer has Our Town while Huron performs The Addams Family. EMU presents North Star (recommended for teens & adults)
