Neighborhood Creates It's Own Winter Games

Posted: Updated:
Minnesota -

An Olympic inspired ride of a lifetime.

People in Minnesota are getting in on the Olympics by hosting their very own winter games equipped with a snow luge.

Residents in Crystal say the luge took about two months to build and it was a group effort.

They compiled snow from a number of neighborhood homes.

The celebration started with opening ceremonies earlier this week and has been up and running ever since.

Children have numbered jerseys and each picked a different country to represent.

Organizers say the little racers are judged for time, distance, and style.
