RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) -78 years ago, Spearfish entered the weather record books.

The Chinook winds caused the temperature to change from 4-below to 45-above in just two minutes.

To remember the event, Spearfish held a snow sculpture event. Community members gathered snow in the Canyon to give people in the Queen City a chance to show their artistic side.

“Especially in Spearfish where we gravitate to the art, it is amazing, you set these boxes out and people come out of nowhere and start working on them and see people come out and engage like this,” Kyler Flock says.

The winner will get a $50 gift card to Nonna’s, an Italian restaurant in Spearfish.
