When it comes to sledding, people tend to get creative if they find themselves without a sled. And, in Battle Creek, there's an entire event dedicated to seeing just how creative people can be with cardboard sleds, specifically.

The Festivus 2022 Cardboard Sled Competition took place this past Saturday (2/12) at the Leila Arboretum in Battle Creek. There was only one rule for the competition: all sleds must be made of cardboard, adhesive, and paint ONLY. No other kind of structural support could be used.
