With over 1,000 members in the Facebook group ‘Rae’s Snoball Shack’ – Jellico native, Raeanne Barton, has finally announced the long-awaited Grand Opening for her sno-cone stand.

The Grand Opening of Rae’s Snoball Shack will be Saturday, July 4 from 12 to 8:30p.m. Snow-cone lovers can satisfy their sweet tooth by visiting the stand just in front of Alvin’s Furniture Store in Jellico that day. Prices will range from $1.50 to $4.00 per size.

The first 20 customers will receive a free pack of sparklers with the purchase of a snow cone. There will also be patriotic photo props set up for the Jellico community to take lots of pictures and have some fun on the 4th!

Barton expressed her excitement for the grand opening by saying, “I absolutely love my community and all of the people in it. I thought that this would be a good way for me to connect, serve, and give everyone the opportunity to buy a delicious shaved ice,” She added, “After a lot of thinking and praying, I decided I wanted to make this business happen and I hope the community enjoys the availability of me being right here in Jellico too. They, as many other people have been so encouraging and supportive.”
