The 133rd annual version of the event will run from Jan. 24 to Feb. 3.  And setup is already well underway.

This marks the first year the Vulcans are building a 3,500 square-foot snow castle at their snow park located within the State Fairgrounds. The structure went up Wednesday with bright fire-red scaffolding.
