Kappa Sigma Fraternity's snow sculpture for the King Kold Karnival features a large bunny holding a hockey stick and a gopher being cooked in a large cauldron. The slogan reads: "Sioux Brew is Gopher Stew." A Studebaker car is parked next to the house. 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.
