“Just Us Girls” Pouch in Richmond, Indiana.

By Bob Burchfield, Editor

The other day I was sightseeing in Richmond and Wayne County, Indiana. While visiting with Nancy Sartain at the Richmond/Wayne County Convention and Tourism Bureau (CTB), I came across a unique package that should be of interest to women.

If you stop by the CTB, located at 5701 National Road East in Richmond, you can pick up a “Just Us Girls” pouch (see photo above) containing eight (8) coupons (see below) for discounts on purchases at local galleries, restaurants, boutiques, and more (see below).


There is also a Visitor Savings Booklet included in the pouch, with 54 discount, free admission, BOGO, and free gift offers (see the “Experience Richmond” image below).


All coupons expire on Dec. 31, 2017. So now is the time to round up a group of your best friends and head to eastern Indiana to take a day trip with your BFFs, do some shopping, have some fun, and enjoy some good savings on products and services at area venues.

Richmond, Indiana. — The chainsaws and chisels fire up on January 24, 2017 kicking off Richmond’s 4th annual Meltdown Winter Ice Festival. This event turns downtown Richmond into a wondrous destination where custom ice carvings, impressive ice fights, lively winter activities, and fun collide – and it’s all FREE.

Watch the ice fly as each internationally known, multi-award winning ice artist use their polished skills, imagination and passion to create a dazzling array of artistic ice sculptures. Meet the renowned artists and pose with more than 35 stunning creations. During the festival, over 22 tons of ice will be intricately designed and sculpted into amazing works of art. Each block of ice is approximately 4’ wide by 18” thick and weights nearly 300 lbs.

At the Family Fun Zone, festival attendees can interact with various sculptures masterfully crafted entirely from ice, such as corn hole, ping pong, and a slide. Other lively activities include a frozen fairy trail, paint and take souvenir, chili cook-off, frosty mug pub crawl, art show, food vendors, and more.

The main event is the no holds barred “Ice Fights” sculpting competitions between two ice carvers and 1200 lbs. of ice. These high-octane and competitive ice fights will take place Friday, January 27th and Saturday, January 28th – competitions on both nights will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the new Elstro Park Plaza, downtown Richmond. Ice sculptures will remain on display, weather permitting.
