I made it out early on Thursday morning to catch teams at the tail-end of constructing their month-long snow sculptures. At about 6:30 a.m., the month-long statue teams were just hours away from their 9 a.m. deadline and were rushing to add the finishing touches to their work before the judges arrived.

I’m hoping to have the chance to go out again in the next night or two to get photos of finished sculptures, but if the snow buries everything, it may be a lost cause.
If you don’t want to wait, MTU’s communications staff has been doing a great job of taking photographs and getting them posted to their Flickr account. Their album of completed statues is as good as you could ask for. You can also check out more contest results, Winter Carnival Royalty, the weekend schedule of events, and more at the official 100th Carnival website.
