One pair of siblings made a replica of a Star Wars space ship that played the franchise’s theme song over Bluetooth speakers. Other kids painted and cut shapes to create make-shift cars.

Mackenna Trudel of Franklin made a replica of a Franklin Outing Club plow, which won first place for design at the cardboard sled races at the Veteran’s Memorial Recreation Ski Area on Saturday.

Forty participants and more than 100 spectators braved the wind and cold to attend the event – an annual tradition in Franklin, organizers said. The Franklin Winter Carnival runs through March 2. A schedule of events can be found at franklinoutingclub.org.
