The City of Kenosha and Downtown Kenosha, Inc. are working on plans for the 2015 Snow Daze Festival and are offering the UW-Parkside Art Department students a stake in the action.  Please let me know your thoughts.  See tentative plans, below.
 
 
TENTATIVE PLANS FOR 2015:
 
Snow Daze Festival
Saturday, February 14, 2015
presented by the City of Kenosha together with Downtown Kenosha, Inc.
 
Back again after a very successful inaugural event in 2014, the 2015 Snow Daze Festival will have activities in Library Park from 12-3 p.m., including an ice sculpting demonstration by Art Below Zero, family games and snow painting or other art-related activities with UW-Parkside art students. There will be great photo opportunities with “Kenosha Landmarks” themed ice sculptures in front of the library. Inside the Simmons Library, craft supplies will be available from 12-3 p.m. for children to create xxxx.
 
Art Below Zero of Franksville is creating the ice sculptures, which are expected to last up to two weeks, depending on the weather. Downtown businesses and Downtown Kenosha, Inc. are sponsoring additional ice sculptures in front of downtown businesses.  (see images from last year at: http://www.visitkenosha.com/blog/ice-ice-baby )
 
The event is free and open to the public, and is part of the Second Saturday celebration downtown, featuring special entertainment and sales at downtown businesses.
