WINTER CARNIVAL AT MTU

Winter Carnival at Michigan Technological University in Houghton Michigan

Look what fun they had this week!

Snow volleyball

Human dogsled races--glad I am not in that dogteam!

Ice Bowling with human bowling balls on discs! Now that looks fun!


Lovely queens and princesses! What would a winter carnival be without those?


My fave part--the life sized ice sculptures! Especially pretty at night cause they are all lit.


The theme was Frightful Creatures with Chilling Features.... and that is a real full sized house Godzilla is atacking, in case you were wondering!

My son refereeing a broomball tournament.


The all-nighter where the frats and groups make the bulk of their sculptures in one night!


Another sculpture in progress at the all nighter. Judging is later on...

If you live in upper Michigan it might be a fun thing to go see. The whole town seems to get involved and the structures stay frozen a LONG time up there. :)
