Nicole Connors is ready for Family Day.

The Petrolia woman is one of the people participating in the town’s snow sculpture contest featuring cartoons. It’s just one of the events for Family Day.

Laurissa Ellsworth, director of marketing for the town, says families can use props, paint and their imaginations to come up with a winning entry “but the main ingredient must be snow.”

Ellsworth says you can register your sculpture through Facebook, email ( at [email protected]) or at Town Hall or The Centre.

Judging takes place Feb. 17 with the winners announced in March.

Ellsworth says there is lots to do on the Family Day weekend. Friday the film at Victoria Hall will be ‘Her’ starting at 7pm. The Petrolia Lions present Rock Around the Clock Saturday night at 8.

And Sunday is packed with events including free public skating from 12:50 until 1:40 pm and a showing of Despicable Me 2 at Victoria Hall at 2 pm.

Monday there is more free public skating between 11 am and 12:45 pm and there will be lots of events at The Centre including a Bouncy Castle and Games from 11 am to 3 pm and a free family swim between 1 pm and 4 pm.
