There is at least a glimmer of hope that IceTacular may return to Goderich's Courthouse Square this winter, after all.
Downtown businessperson Brendan Sowerby recently proposed to Goderich Council that the event be held on a non-profit basis in February.
Sowerby has indicated to Council, that he'd like to co-sponsor a revival of the event with the BIA.
Mayor John Grace says he likes the idea, but that Council needs more information.
Council has approved Sowerby's idea in principle, pending a formal application.
Up till last year, IceTacular was staged by the Goderich Downtown BIA, but they had to abandon the event because of a lack of volunteers.
IceTacular started in 2016, and was held in parallel with Goderich's annual Winterfest celebration each February.
