Might I suggest that when you need a pause in the action this holiday season, as I did Saturday afternoon, you head to Bissinger's for a big cup of their fabulous hot chocolate mit schlag and tiny chocolate chips. It will cheer you up and calm you down. Thus fortified, I quickly walked along Euclid to McPherson to check out the ice sculptures.
Ice sculptures were placed on each of the four corners at McPherson and Euclid. The little guy in the photo was told not to touch the ice with his fingers---so, how about a foot?
While business was transacted as usual inside the The Eye Bar at McPherson & Euclid, a pair of musicians entertained under the watchful eye of Kate Chopin (see earlier post here).
As evening descended, the children got in a few last pats before the animals were lead away.
All of the animals from Cindy's Zoo strongly resisted getting back into the van to head home, including as you might expect, the donkey.
The camel got a final allez oop.
As mentioned in the first post about this year's Holiday on the Plaza and Window Walk events, it was a splendid day. Everyone seemed happy--the people who visited, the residents who came out to enjoy the festivities, and the retail businesses which had a great day too.
