Winter Carnival is 4 Days of no school at Michigan Tech. It's a yearly tradition that involves, outdoor snow activities, snow statues and an opportunity to celebrate our deep snow. For anybody that has never seen a snow statue it's pretty awesome. I tried to keep a few people in the pics to get an idea of how big these statues are. The theme was frightful creatures with chilling features

Doing some snow removal



Audio Engineering Society getting ready to make some noise.

Pac Man

Jurassic Park




Notice the ice chains







Monster

King Kong


South Park



Godzilla



My Favorite Ghost Busters. Probably one of the best statues I've seen in 5 years, besides the full scale mcdonalds from 2005








I liked the horse and buggy




Pretty cool stuff. I've never built one but I enjoy looking at them. The big ones take up to a month to build and there is also a competition for the best all night statue

Those look pretty cool. A lot more time spent making those than I could handle though...
Any pics of the mcdonalds?
That was a few years ago, I might have some pics

That is totally awsome! That wasn't all done by students from your school was it? Reminds me of the sandcastle competitions we used to have around here...until it got too roudy for the city to handle...wimps.

Yes. Only students and student groups work on them. Like I said there are month long and all night statues. It takes a lot of work on top of school and obviously it's not a nice warm task

It takes a lot of people, a lot of time and a lot of snow. They use that John Deere loader to load dump trucks full of snow for deliver to the statues. They haul dirty snow from campus to remote lots and clear the remote lots of clean snow and haul it back to campus for snow statues.

Did you not see man-bear-pig?


The night of the all nighter, last wednesday is a "heavy" drinking night. There's little control over alcohol consumption on campus due to the 3-4000 students wandering on campus all night.

I was at work, and skimming fast. Might have also caused some of my spelling mistakes, but I suck at spelling anyway, so it probibly only hurt a little.....
