This year’s theme is “There’s no place like Somerset,” which draws on the Frank L. Baum classic and adds some local flair. The festival began Friday and continues through Sunday. It includes live ice-carving demonstrations, food trucks, fire pits and more than 35 sculptures on display along Main Street and Centre Avenue.

Survey ranks the 25 most rewatchable films of all time FiveThirtyEight compiled a survey with just over 1,000 respondents – 1,169, to be precise – of their most rewatched films of all time. No surprises, of course, that Star Wars came out on top with a total of 98 people clocking Star Wars in the No.1 spot. The Wizard Of Oz, meanwhile, came in at No.2 whilst The Sound Of Music was No.3. The data, when broken down by gender, is slightly less surprising. Star Wars was considered the No.1 most rewatchable film by men, whilst women counted The Wizard Of Oz as their No.1. In fact, 51 women counted Wizard Of Oz as their all-time rewatchable film compared to 66 men, who counted Star Wars as theirs.
