There is a ton of snow on the ground and now residents in the area can take part in the winter fun at home. The Rockford Park District has kicked off a community-wide snowman building contest!

One thousand free Rocky the Snowman kits are now available and made possible by a generous donation from Collins Aerospace. The polar bear mascot from Carlson Ice Arena and Sapora Playworld’s name is Rocky.

You can get your kit while supplies last at the following locations:

  • Carlson Ice Arena
  • Lockwood Park
  • Mercyhealth Sportscore Two
  • Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens
  • Snow Park at Alpine Hills
  • UW Health Sports Factory
  • Washington Park Community Center

The kit includes instructions, buttons for the eyes, a black solo cup for the nose, a blue scarf, blue Kool-Aid, and a spray bottle for paw prints. You’ll also receive lyrics to “Rocky the Snowman.”

If you want to enter the contest, all you have to do is submit a photo of your snowman to Keep in mind, the deadline to submit your photo is February 28. For more info, you can visit their website.
