Six snow sculptures made by students from three high schools and two junior high schools in the city were displayed in Odori 7-chome Square, which used to be a snow dumping ground for citizens. There was also a square dance, a singing contest, and a dog race on a course specially set up on the sidewalk. *The poster says that the event will be held on Feb. 18 and 19, but in fact, it was only held on the 18th.
