Are you looking for something fun to do this weekend? While temperatures are expected to be cold, it will be perfect for both pups and people at Jerry’s Pub. The ninth annual Pupsicle 500 will be held the Wamplers Lake hangout spot at 650 Egan Hwy., and whether you have a dog or not, it is a lot of fun. The event runs from noon to 3 p.m., but you are welcome to stay late and get a hot supper.
