New Haven: Get creative with snow and sculpt

Register Staff
NEW HAVEN — Our friends at the city Department of Parks, Recreation & Trees have a suggestion as to what to do with all that snow: Get creative.
Starting today, they’re holding a snow sculpture contest throughout the city parks, says Martin Torresquintero, adventure coordinator for the department.
To enter, post photos of you and your snow sculpture in any city park to the New Haven Parks, Recreation & Trees Facebook Page:
“Let us know the title of the sculpture and what park it’s in for a chance to win prizes donated by local merchants,” says Torresquintero. Entries will be accepted until 5 p.m. Sunday.
Oh, and he asks that snow sculptures not block sidewalks or roads or interfere with the operation of playground equipment. And in case we forgot to mention it, all entries must be in good taste.
