Four members of Sigma Nu Fraternity prepare their horse and cart snow sculpture for the King Kold Karnival. The winter festival known as the King Kold Karnival was a staple at UND from 1951-1968. The event usually included contests, sled races, dances, beauty pageants, and most notably large snow sculptures. A brief resurgence emerged in 1979 but was not continued.
