Laura Gibbs Green, communications manager for the Rockford Park District, joins Steve Summers on This Week in the Stateline to talk about the upcoming Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition Jan. 26-29.

There will be 11 teams competing this year, as well as 11 teams in the high school division.

Last year, roughly 59,000 people drove through Sinnissippi Park to see the sculptures last year, Gibbs Green said.

“When you start to see those snow blocks form at Sinnissippi Park, it’s like big wood blocks of snow, basically, then you know that things are looking pretty good,” Gibbs Green said.
