There's going to be a snowman building contest in Grand Rapids.

Once we get snow.

The contest is February 9 - 10 and there are categories for children and adults.

Hopefully we'll have a chance to practice between now and then.

In addition to the snowman festivities, Mangiamo will have 3 topping pizze pies for $6.50 and one complimentary Hot Cocoa or Hot Spiced Cider for each contest.

Contestants must provide their own snowman decorations. Mangiamo, or mother nature will provide the snow!

Draw up some snowman plans and get ready for fun with the whole family!
