Pines Snow Fest event this Saturday
A 7,500-ton mountain of hard-packed imported snow will be the star attraction at this Saturday's Snow Fest in Pembroke Pines.
Truckloads of the slush will be poured into a heaping mound so Pines residents can climb it, carve snow angels, dig snow graves for unwitting friends, or build impenetrable snow fortresses.
Snow Fest also features parlor games like tossing balls into Santa's boots, plus holiday arts and crafts, tattoos and prize wheels. Mini-Ferris wheels, obstacle courses, bounce houses and train rides round out the event's festivities.
"They should bring mittens or sweaters if children are going to be diving into snow," said Francie Novo, special events coordinator. "You can say this much: the vendor selling hot chocolate is going to make a killing."
Snow Fest is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Pembroke Shores Park, 501 SW 172nd Ave. Tickets are $4 for residents and $6 for others. Call 954-435-6525.
