Not sure what to do with all the snow? Try a snow sculpture

Thursday, January 9, 2014

Don't know what to do with all this snow? Going stir crazy in the house with no school? Wanting an outside activity with friends, family, neighbors and co-workers?

Why not build a snowman, snow creature or snow sculpture and enter the Greencastle Parks and Recreation Departments Snow Sculpture Contest.

It looks like an invasion of snowmen has taken over the front yard at the Karen and Matt Headley residence on Hilltop Lane in the Edgelea Subdivision north of Greencastle. In sculpturing their cool creations, the Headleys and children Preston and Olivia took advantage of a foot of good-packing snow that fell before Greencastle and the rest of Indiana was plunged into a deep freeze.

After you have created your unique masterpiece, take a picture and fill out an entry form to enter. Entries can be created anytime before March 4. After all, the Greencastle area has lots of snow just asking to be used for a unique creation.

The top two entries in each of three categories wins -- Best Snowman, Best Snow Creature and Best Snow Sculpture (anything besides first two).

Can be built, photographed and entered between Dec. 1 and Tuesday, March 4.
