The 34th Annual Illinois Snow Sculpting Competitionis underway in Rockford.

The event is hosted by the Rockford Park District and allows high school students and adults to compete through an unusual artistic medium -- snow.

John Beck is an alderman and works for the Park District. He said the event is a big attraction for the community.

“Really, I think it’s just a great community event that results in some fabulous art that our citizens love to come out and see,” said Beck. “We can get anywhere from 20,000 to 50,000 people coming through"

You can view these creations throughout the week at Rockford’s Sinnissippi Park and vote for the People’s Choice winner on Saturday morning.
