This was the first place snow sculpture from the 2008 Saint Paul Winter Carnival held at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds. I didn't catch it at first, but there is a mechanical dog looking up at the Rocket Man. This creation by Jon Baller, Curt Cook and Joseph Hauwiller Jr won them a cool $1200 cash prize. Not bad for playing in the snow eh?
