Racine & Me: Bucks Visit Prison, Fire & Ice Festival, Tamale Talk, Snowdance 10-Minute Comedy Festival (1/12/2020)
* Bucks Visit Prison
The Bucks’ visit to the Racine Correctional Institution in December was a powerful experience for everyone involved. CBS 58 Morning News Anchor Jessica Tighe sits down with the Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility for the Milwaukee Bucks for an in-depth conversation about the “Play for Justice” initiative. Arvind Gopalratnam oversaw the team’s visit to the medium-security prison. Learn about the goal behind the event, hear reaction to it, and find out what’s next for the team.
* Fire & Ice Festival
The Fire & Ice Festival returns to downtown Racine on Saturday, January 18th. Two representatives from the Downtown Racine Corporation reveal what’s new this year. We also watch Ken Clark in action as he creates an ice sculpture. He’s one of the carvers you can check out at Monument Square during the festival.
* Tamale Talk
One of the changes at this year’s Fire & Ice Festival is the addition of more food trucks. I Love Tamales is one of them. Owner and Chef, Olga White, explains where she got her talent for making tamales and why she quit her day job years ago to follow her passion.
