Grand Haven Main Street hosts snowman competition By Grace Montgomery

Snowmen sculptures are currently showcased along Washington Ave. as part of the Snowmen On Main Street event. It began on Saturday Feb. 13 and lasts until Saturday, Feb. 20.

Local schools, organizations, and individuals were challenged to create snowmen using anything but snow. The sculptures were then registered and placed around town.

As a community, we are asked to vote for our favorite snowman. To vote, scan the QR code attached using your phone camera. Winners will be announced on Monday, Feb 22 through a Facebook live.
