Illinois Snow Sculpting Begins Today In Sinnissippi Park
Over the years, Mother Nature has caused a problem or two for the annual Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition because it's been too warm, or we haven't gotten enough snow. That is certainly not the problem for this year's get-together at Sinnissippi Park.
With Wednesday morning's temperature being double-digit below zero, there's not much danger of any melting going on. Thursday we'll edge up close to the 32 degree mark, then plummet back down going into the weekend.
Teams Will Be Out There Each Day Sculpting From 7am To 11pm, State Teams May Work Through The Night On Friday
I've always loved seeing what our area high school teams come up with each year to try to win area bragging rights, while other teams from around the state of Illinois are going at it to win the right to go on to represent Illinois in the U.S. National Snow Sculpting Competition in 2023.
Here's some great examples from the last couple of years of the Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition at Sinnissippi Park:
Around 50,000 people or so are planning on stopping by to catch the competition throughout this week, with the winners being announced at an awards ceremony this Saturday, January 29, at 1:00 pm.
