ROCKTON, Ill. (WIFR) -- Rockton Yeti Fest is in full force and runs through the weekend downtown and at Settlers Park. It welcomes all abominable snow people to watch sculpting, take part in yeti hunting as well as shopping.

One of the cutest attractions is the mushing where the Free Spirit Siberian Rescue's sled dogs put on a demonstration and showed off for the crowd.

“Dogs are always such a huge draw for kids and it gives them a chance to see these dogs aren't ones to sit on the couch or anything, they actually were bred for a purpose and in this case we're showing them sled dogs,” said musher with the Free Spirit Siberian Rescue Jason Hussong.
