A Two Rivers summer tradition for decades that ceased operations in the mid-1990’s, looks to be making a comeback. Snowfest began in the Cool City after snow was found in July 1936, under dirt and a chunk of ice. The pile of snow measured 4 feet deep and 10 feet long! Seehafer News spoke yesterday with Michael Van Eyck, a member of the Snowfest Planning committee which has been meeting monthly, since August.
Van Eyck says he can remember attending the annual event when he was a youngster.
The committee member said they’re eyeing a resumption of the festival, complete with a parade & king and queen in the summer of 2020. A fundraiser is scheduled for March 29th, 2019 for a Battle of the Bands and either a Fish Fry or Fish Boil at the Two Rivers Community House.
