Though the forecast for sub-zero temperatures forced the rescheduling or cancellation of a few of the Old Forge Winter Carnival events over the weekend of February 13, 14 and 15, revelers still turned out in high numbers to participate in planned activities at McCauley Mountain on Saturday.

Cross-country skiers and showshoers took to the trails to compete in the Kiwanis Winter Sports Challenge and cardboard sleds zoomed down the hill.
The inaugural Carnival Snow Sculpture Contest had 10 entries representing communities from Okara Lakes to Inlet.
The winner was an enormous alligator sculpted by Bill and Barb Baumann of Okara Lakes.
The Baumanns won four day passes to Enchanted Forest/ Water Safari for their creative effort.
The activity, sponsored by the Hans and Laurie Schmid family, raised $200 for the Tayler Schmid Memorial Fund.
