Additional Information

Members of the Beta Theta Pi Fraternity construct their snow sculpture for the 1962 King Kold Karnival. One student stands on top of the sculpture watering it down with a hose. Two students use a shovel, rake, and a broom to begin shaping the sculpture. 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.
