Flake Out Festival

It's tradition in Wisconsin Dells.
Teams of sculptors come from all over the state to compete.
One team created a snow sculpture with the name.
"There must be an easier way"
It shows a man struggling to push a piano up a flight of stairs.

"It's kind of humorous. It has some nice, uh, whimsical shapes to it, and we hear a lot of laughs. People are coming up and laughing a lot,"
sculptor, Tony Benkowski.

"Each person picks what they like. Some people like action, some like detail, some like abstract, so whatever is the thing that floats their boat, is how they're going to vote," says Sculptor, Jeff Olson.

Teams get two days to chisel and scrape their way toward a masterpiece.
The festival also features wagon rides, fireworks... as well as music, an arts and crafts fair and ice carving demonstrations.
