Stuarts Draft will celebrate the first ever "Sweet Dreams Day" this weekend. The event is a way to recognize the area's unique designation as home to both the Hershey and Little Debbie plants.

Crews are busy setting up tents and stands for Saturday's festivities. Craft shows, a chocolate chip pancake breakfast, and a Little Debbie Look-a-Like contest are just some of the events you can check out.

Organizers say they've been working on the project since November. "We've been meeting once or twice a month, trying to get everything together," says Kevin Blackwell, an event organizer.

"Being as this is our first one, we're not quite sure what to expect but we want to try and get as much prepared as we can."

Sweet Dreams Day will get some added recognition outside the valley. The postal service will put a special cancellation stamp on all outgoing mail.
