Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition Postponed Due to Lack of Snow

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- The 27th Annual Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition scheduled for January 16-19, 2013 at Sinnissippi Park, 1401 N. Second Street, Rockford has been postponed to January 23-26, 2013. Teams from around the state will compete in Rockford for the right to represent Illinois in the U.S. Nationals Snow Sculpting Competition; there is also a high school division. The Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition is a free, family-friendly community winter event hosted by the Rockford Park District.

“We made this decision based on the fact that currently there are not large enough snow piles at the Chicago Rockford International Airport and the snow quality is poor due to dirt and ice. At this time, there is also no measurable snowfall expected over the next week,” says John Beck, Events & Recreation Projects Manager.
