The excitement is starting to build for Lake Geneva’s Winterfest celebration, which officially kicked off this week. Nine of the best snow sculpting teams in the country are working their magic as they shape massive blocks of snow into works of art for the U.S. National Snow Sculpting Competition. Voting for the “People’s Choice Award” will take place from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday with the award ceremony scheduled for 3 p.m. The teams and their sculptures are spread out between Flat Iron Park and the Riviera to allow plenty of room for viewing. Don’t miss your opportunity to vote for your favorite and chat with the sculptors.
