Some Adorable Snow Sculptures Were Made at Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday

More than 100 participants came out for the Snow Sculpture Contest this Saturday at Brooklyn Bridge Park, and the results were creative and adorable.

Contestants had just two hours to whip something up. Entries in the "family" category ran the gamut, from the ambitious igloo, shown above.... this sweet snow cat.

Brooklyn Bridge Park supplied a bag of coal for eyes and buttons.

Fornino's supplied hot chocolate, cupcakes and a warm fire for frozen fingers.

This snow dragon, by Katherine and Henry Winchester, was part of the winning family entry. There was a castle, too.

In the adult category, we liked snow guy, who had a little snow man perched on his shoulder.

This three-person team sculpted an awesome octopus, which took home the adult prize.

The contest was a great idea by Brooklyn Bridge Park's programming folks, and got a lot of people out into the park on a snowy winter's day. BBP says they may do this again next year.
