Goderich Winterfest is almost literally around the corner, and an affiliated event now has the funding it needs to go ahead.
ICEtacular is held in and around Courthouse Square, featuring winter-themed activities and exhibitions for the whole family.
The event is run by the Downtown BIA, which has received a grant of $5 thousand from the Town of Goderich.
The organization's request was part of an overall 2019 budget presentation to Town Council earlier this week.
Councillor Trevor Bazinet has been a BIA board member, and stressed the time-sensitive nature of the request.
He advised Council that without the grant, ICEtacular may not have been able to go ahead.
The $5 thousand municipal amount for ICEtacular matches the total of grants already awarded to the BIA by Libro Credit Union and Hyundai of Goderich.
West Coast Bluesfest has also donated $15 hundred for the event.
Winterfest -- featuring ICEtacular -- is set to go on February 2nd and 3rd.
