Over in Sinnissippi Park, snow took shape for the 32nd annual Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition.
Hundreds traveled through the park to catch a glimpse at some chilly works of art. Each year, artists from all over the Midwest travel to the park to carve these massive blocks of snow. While today's warm temperatures weren't ideal for these sculptors, it was a great day to walk around check out these masterpieces.
"It's good for the community, a lot of really good art work, I mean a lot of people are really missing out and not walking around like this," Tyler Shacklee, snow sculptor.
Brian Hierstein, Joe Goral and Kelly Madison took hope the top prize for their sculpture so long and thanks for all the fish.
This year's high school winner was -- Rockford Christian with their sculpture title King Pong
