Keep dreaming of snow. Not only for the holidays, but for the Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition at Sinnissippi Park this January. Here are more details on what is planned for the event. 


Teams from around the state compete for the right to represent Illinois in the 2017 U.S. Nationals. The Rockford Park District is pretty resourceful when it comes to gathering snow for carving blocks. However, the Stateline needs snow of some kind by January 20th to pull this event off.

Admission is free, but donations are welcomed by the Rockford Park District. Here's more information on the event.

The Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition is hosted by the Rockford Park District, whose mission is to "help people enjoy life."

Till then, think snow.
