World Snow Sculpting Championship

UPDATE: Thank you for attending the inaugural World Snow Sculpting Championship this past weekend! Stillwater welcomed 40,000 people to a first-ever World Class competition and though the weather was cold we had a perfect snowfall during the World’s Coolest Block Party Saturday night making the riverfront festival scene with glowing snow art, a DJ, and fire performers quite a sight! We wanted to let you know that the SNOW SCULPTURES and #ONLYINMN monument will REMAIN UP at least through this Sunday, January 30th. There will be solar-powered white lights coming Friday night too so you can view in the evening as well! Hopefully, the sculptures will stay up even longer if they are safe and don’t melt. They are located in the riverfront Lowell Park and access is FREE.
