grantparkBundle up and bustle down to Grant Park for a free 3-day festival of snow!  Both adults and children will find plenty to amuse and amaze them, as Grant Park at S. Balboa and Michigan Avenue is transformed into a wintry wonderland.  A national competition featuring twenty-seven snow sculptures will grace the area, created by artists from as near as Chicago to as far away as China.  Local high school students will present their own snow sculpture exhibition, giving guests a glimpse at Chicago’s up-and-coming artists.  Dog-sledding demonstrations and snowboard rail jams will thrill onlookers and plenty of food and beverage stands will be there to slake thirst and stave off hunger.
