Don’t miss this year’s snow sculpting and winter fun bonanza happening at Smith Park and Curtis Reed Square.

Friday night Jeff Olson, having just competed in the United States Nationals Snow Sculpting Competition in Lake Geneva, will be sculpting on the square downtown. Celebrating the return of the event to Superbowl weekend, the sculpture will have a football theme.

If Friday inspires you, there may still be a block available to carve on Saturday, professionals will be available to help you get started, and show us your creativity. Otherwise come out and join in the fun. The Frozen Flamingo Open is an opportunity for golfer’s to think spring on the four hole course, clubs and balls provided, with a chance to win one of the coveted flamingo trophies. Bring your cross country skis and enjoy the groomed trails around Smith Park. The sculptures lined along Keyes Street are visible by foot or car. Don’t forget the storytelling by the Menasha Public Library at 1PM in the Memorial Building.

Don’t forget the chili donated by Mihm’s Charcoal Grill and the gallons of hot chocolate served in the Memorial Building

While we’ve had all types of weather from highs near 50 to sub-zero and the event has always been a popular opportunity for people in the twin cities to break that cabin fever. This year’s weather looks to be perfect for sculpting and chili with a fresh layer of white and moderate temperatures. Come out and join in the fun from noon-3PM.
