CNY Arts Center’s 3rd Annual Snow Day is set for January 18 from 10 am to 3 pm. This year the fun will take place downtown at the Community Room in City Hall and across the street at Veteran’s Park.

“We decided to move it downtown where we also have space for outdoor fun,” said Nancy Fox, director. “We haven’t had outdoor snow activities the first two years but we’re expecting at least enough of the white stuff to build a healthy snow man or two and have a lot of fun doing it.”

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 by11 am and create any snow sculpture, creature or snow man. Some accessories will be available, or bring your own.  At 1 pm, Judges will award 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners who will have their picture taken with Frosty the Snowman, also in attendance.

Concessions will offer up hot dogs, nachos and cheese, soup, chili, popcorn, cotton candy, donuts, and plenty of hot chocolate. Carnival tickets are available at the door for a nominal fee and special coupons are available at the gallery for free game tickets. Snow or no snow, it is sure to be another great day of family fun!
