Marietta Main Street teamed up with We Lov Pets this year for the Marietta Ice Festival. The downtown was full of fun pieces carved by Whistler Ice Works in Marietta for people to go out and enjoy. Marietta Main Street posted their thanks to everyone who attended following the event. “We had a blast, and we know you did, too,” they said. “We’d also like to thank our incredible sponsors – We Lov Pets, Clutch MOV, and Riverview Credit Union, and each business who sponsored a sculpture… and are especially grateful to our Marietta Main Street board of directors and volunteers, to John and Barbara of Mattress Max, and to artist Tyson Whistler of Whistler Ice Works for all the hard work they put into hosting this event for our community.”
