SOI has been the culinary event in Cache Valley since its inception. I've attended every couple of years and have always enjoyed the evening and the food. Spice On Ice is first and foremost a food tasting experience, with appetizers, entrees, dessert, and coffee/hot chocolate service provided by many different restaurants and caterers from around the valley. In addition to the food they host a door prize giveaway, silent auction, raffle, and the culmination of the evening...a live auction featuring the talents of auctioneer Lane Parker of Smithfield Livestock Auction and Logan River Ranch.

After appetizers they opened the doors to the ice sheet and let everyone in to find their seats. This year I was seated at a table with one of our state senators, Lyle Hillyard, and our auctioneer Lane Parker, as well as their guests.
