Wednesday’s snowfall was substantial enough to begin the 2013 White Pigeon Snowman-Building contest.
Event organizers said if conditions don’t change too drastically, the competition will continue through next week. Judging will take place through photos emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
White Pigeon Village Trustee Shireen Cline, who has been a key organizer of the event, said a number of categories exist and judges will place entries in an appropriate category.
The 2013 competition is the second since the inaugural event in 2010. Poor weather conditions kept the contest from taking place in 2011 and 2012.
Prizes will be awarded during a gathering at 3 p.m. Jan. 6 at the Wade Park gazebo.
