2017 Snow Sculptures

Snow was more than just a little challenge this year in Paradise Michigan!  Hopes for the unlimited possibilities for snow sculpture visions soared as total snowfalls the area reached 110 inches.  Then the "January Thaw" proceeded, melting some five feet of snow and dashing designs of grandeur.  Several more inches fell a few days just before the contest deadline and temperatures dropped. Efforts and designs were underway again!

Our local contestant families went to work and showcased their skills in this year's 2017 Winter Carnival Snow Sculpture Contest.  What better way for a Snow Family to spend time together then ice fishing.  The Holden family architects added a couple of snow tunnels to the property as well.

Serving as a member on the Wild Blueberry Festival Steering Committee and Chairperson of the Fish Bowl event, it makes sense that the Moore household would have visions of Blueberry Pies, but who would think it could look so appetizing in snow!  Congratulations to the Moores!

We thank this event's sponsors, the Berry Patch and The Inn, Gastropub and Smokehouse.

In the process of embracing the winter months, the Paradise area community is looking forward to their Ice Festival, February 24 – 26.  Starting with the classic movie, 8 Below, at the Whitefish Township Community Library Friday evening, a Free Winter MarketPlace Saturday, Pancake & Sausage Breakfast Saturday morning, Chili Cook-Off, Ice Sculpture Contest, and Polar Plunge, the entire weekend is filled with opportunities for snow mobiles, cross-country skiing, and snow shoe hikes.  Check the Ice Festival Information flyer for further details.
