ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Be on the lookout for “random acts of snow sculpting” going on throughout the community. Signs like the one shown may start appearing outside Rockford Park District facilities and other area locations as a way to encourage the community to create their own snow masterpiece. The Environmental Education and Recreation Team of the Rockford Park District is behind the snow sculptures to raise awareness of the 4th Annual Community Snow Sculpting Contest.

In conjunction with the 28th Annual Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition, individuals, families, businesses, and area organizations are invited to have some fun outdoors building a snow sculpture. The Community Snow Sculpting Contest is presented by the Rockford Park District, Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition, and 23 WIFR.
