The boxes are back! You’ve got to love a small town that’s figured out how to draw tourists in by building 8x8x8 foot boxes and filling them with snow.
The Second Annual Great SnowFest is set to begin, running Jan 15-18 with 10 sculpting teams competing. Most are local artisans but a couple of pro teams are in the mix.
Volunteers first stomp the snow down into the boxes like bare-footed grape crushers, except they wear boots. Then the boxes are removed and the sculpting starts.
This was great fun last year and your intrepid blog reporter is on the scene this year to bring you more cool photos and commentary!
