REPUBLIC TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLUC) - A Marquette County family has gone above and beyond with their winter décor.

Marc Fleis and his children have built a nearly 12-foot tall snowman in the front yard of their Hemlock Street home in Republic Township. The family used shovels and snow scoops to build three snowballs, then used a forklift to place them on top of each other.

The snowman’s name is Carl.

Marc Fleis, the creator of the snowman, says he enjoys seeing people stop by to check out his family’s creation.

“We’re happy with that kind of attention,” Fleis said. “The kids and I were discussing it, and we didn’t just make it for ourselves. That’s why it’s on the corner, it’s for everybody to check out.”

The Fleis Family says they are considering building an even larger snowman next winter.
