Lincoln’s Birthday is a legal holiday in some U.S. states, including Arizona, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, New Jersey, and New York. It is observed on the anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth on February 12, 1809.
In other states, a celebration of Lincoln’s birthday is combined with a celebration of Washington’s Birthday or as part of Presidents’ Day. These celebrations occur on the same day as the Federal holiday, the third Monday of February, and not on Washington’s or Lincoln’s actual birthday.
Groundhog Day (Canadian French: Jour de la Marmotte; Pennsylvania German: Grundsaudaag, Murmeltiertag) is a day celebrated on February 2. According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then spring will come early; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will persist for six more weeks.

Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Championships: January 27 to 31, 2015
Snow Sculpture Viewing Week (weather permitting): January 31 to February 8, 2015
January 19 to 23, 2015 Technical Week – Watch how the blocks are built or even volunteer to help by calling Heather Bridges, Chief of Volunteers at 970.547.3100 x3 or email Heather Pease. The enormous blocks of snow are built in anticipation of the artists arrival so that the blocks have time to settle and compact under their own weight prior to being carved. This allows for a more consistent medium, giving the sculptors the ability to execute their gravity-defying designs.
