Snow Sculpture Contest

Do you and your family wait for those good snowfalls to go out and build snowmen in your front yard? When the flakes start to fall, be creative and sculpt your masterpiece! Take a picture of your snow masterpiece and email to Parks & Recreation or drop it off at our office.

Photos will be on display at Southbury Parks and Recreation and winners will be announced by March 29, 2019.
