BOSTON (CBS) – With very little time before the First Night festivities begin, Boston crews are working feverishly to clean up from this weekend’s winter storm.

With temperatures below freezing, the clean up process has not been an easy one. There are many area where mounds of snow still need to be picked up.

“It may not have been a lot of snow, but it was very heavy,” said Chris Cook, the Director for Arts, Tourism, and Special Events.

IceĀ sculptorĀ Donald Chapelle says he’s very excited to reveal his incredible display after a very arduous clean up.

“It put us a little behind because it was a lot of clean up,” Chapelle said. “The Rain washed out some of the things, but we are on schedule again.”

City officials say this weekend’s snow should not deter people from coming out.

The sidewalks along Boylston and Copley are clear for visitors enjoying the 200 exhibitions that will be taking place both inside and outside.
