The First Presbyterian Church of Clarks Summit, 300 School St., will once again participate in the annual Clarks Summit Festival of Ice, with an ice sculpture on display outside and a variety of activities inside.

Elaine Tweedy is the organizer of an exhibit of artwork from local artists and congregation members, with a juried photography show sponsored by the Northeast Photography Club. The exhibit will be open from 6 to 7 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Other activities on Saturday will include a free magic show at 2 p.m. by Eddy Ray, “Pennsylvania’s Busiest Magician and Illusionist,” who has been astounding people from the U.S. to the far reaches of Japan with his artistic sleight of hand, hilarious interactive audience segments, and a fresh approach to performing magic and illusion.

The church’s Chili Cafe will provide a place to warm up, grab a bite to eat and listen to student musicians perform from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Singers from the Jessica Hitchcock Vocal Studio will be featured among the performers.

These activities are part of the Arts at First Presbyterian arts program at the church, which receives support from the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts Program, administered by the Pocono Arts Council, a Lackawanna County Arts and Cultural Grant and numerous individual donors.
