It's "Snowfest" in Frankenmuth, Michigan.

Since Wednesday, snow carvers ave been at work, cutting giant snow blocks into creative designs, hoping to win a $2500 grand prize.

There's also carving for high schoolers, fireworks, a petting zoo, chicken bowling, a baking contest...and yes, a warming tent.

Actually, it was around 50 degrees on Wednesday, but organizers says the snow fest will go on.

However, one snow sculptor said 50-degrees and rain might force his team to get really creative.

Activities include a local TV station broadcasting from the "snow-desk", and the American Culinary Federation's Chefs' " Culinary Tribute to Hawaii."

This year organizers expect upwards of 150,000 people to attend Snowfest.
