Photos: Snow Sculptures in Somerville
After this weekend's snow storm, hundreds gathered in Davis Square and Union Square to build snow sculptures. Here are some photos from Davis Square. Share your photos, too.
When this weekend's storm, which dumped over 28 inches of snow on Somerville, came to an end, people poured out of their homes and gathered in Davis Square.
Some were on skis, some had snowshoes, most walked—and everyone had a smile on his or her face.
Hundreds gathered in Seven Hills Park to build snowmen and snow sculptures. I counted around 60 to 70 sculptures, but there may have been even more.
Meanwhile, something similar was reportedly happening in Union Square, where Artisan's Asylum was expecting hundreds to participate in its Snow Day festivities, including the building of snow sculptures.
I wasn't able to get to Union Square, being on the wrong side of the city, but Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone, on Twitter, said, "Yep, we've got a dance party in Union Square," and he posted video footage of the party on Facebook.
Here are some photos of the Davis Square festivities.
