It's a...a.......a rooster. LOL I love roosters. Come see the rooster and enjoy the Ligonier Ice Fest.

“The crowd is enjoying themselves,” McAlister said. “It’s a good turnout for how cold it is.”

Mark Maley of Geistown, who was at the event with his wife, Vicki, and friends and family members, said they attend each year.

“We enjoy all the camaraderie with our friends and family,” Maley said.

He said they stopped at Joe’s Bar to look at the exotic stuffed animals on display and were planning to go to Carol and Dave’s Roadhouse restaurant after viewing the ice sculptures.

Tim and Wendy Grace of Stoystown, who were ready to take off on a sleigh ride, said that the event was nice.
