CNY Arts Center’s third annual Snow Day is 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 18.
This year the fun will take place downtown at the Community Room in City Hall and across the street at Veteran’s Park.
Family fun will include a snow sculpture contest, snow painting and snow themed games, a children’s carnival, art projects, entertainment and food. CNY Arts Center hopes to revive winter fun and create a new tradition for the community.
Organizers of the children’s carnival are gearing up for a day of fun with a snowman bean bag toss, face painting, ice fishing, snowmen ring toss and more.
Children can build a marshmallow snowman, make beaded snowflakes, step into a snowman backdrop and have their picture taken, design their own snowflake and more in a day that promises to be as much fun indoors as outdoors.
Hearty snow lovers can register at the park for the Snow Sculpture contest by 11 a.m. and create any snow sculpture, creature or snowman. Some accessories will be available, or bring your own.
Creations will be judged at 1 p.m.
Food such a hot dogs, nachos and cheese, soup, chili, popcorn, cotton candy, doughnuts and plenty of hot chocolate will be offered. Carnival tickets are available at the door for a nominal fee and special coupons are available at the gallery for free game tickets.
The event goes on snow or no snow. For more information, visit www.cnyartscenter.com or call 592-3373 for details.
