Snow house in Houghton, MI.
Houghton's lumitalo, or snow house, built under the direction of snow house architect Seppo Makinen of Oulu,  Finland, and similar to the lumitalo built in Hancock for Heikinpäivä, will be open during Carnival and for several days or weeks afterwards for a variety of community functions. The Houghton  lumitalo is next to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.
