Sapporo snow festival (Sapporo Yuki Matsuri 1) began spontaneously in 1950 by a small group of high school students who started making snow sculptures. In time it grew, the japanese Self Defense Force (SDF, you can see the structure they built and saluting in  the pictures above), several groups and the public joining it.

1. Yuki Matsuri. yuki = snow, matsuri = festival
