New Brighton brothers need help naming this year's massive snow creature

This year's gigantic sea creature is almost finished.

The New Brighton Bartz brothers are back in the cold, building their annual snow creature.

The family has gained national attention for creating enormous snow sculptures every winter for the past five years.

Austin, Trevor and Connor's sculptures tend to stick to a theme: sea animals. This year is no different.

Despite the weather – warm-ups and rain – this year's massive fish is expected to be finished by New Years Eve.

The sculptors are asking for some help, though. The fish needs a name, and they want your help.

You can make a suggestion here.
