Councilmember Patrick O’Donnell welcomes fourth district residents to Snow Day in Whaley Park on Saturday, February 26. The 2011 event will feature more than 10 tons of fresh snow for sled races and snowball making.
“This year’s Snow Day event will be bigger than ever,” O’Donnell said. ”We’ve got so many things to do and see for the whole family that we expect to see even more people coming from all sides of the City.”
Indeed, this year’s day of fun and play in the snow is shaping up to be much bigger than in years before. There will be bounce houses, a live DJ, snow cones, face painting, arts & crafts, barbecued hot dogs from the Long Beach Police and Fire Departments, free giveaways from various local merchants and safety demonstrations from Police and Fire. And, new this year, the Aquarium of the Pacific’s Aquarium on Wheels will stop by to give kids a hands-on experience learning about ocean wildlife.
“I want to invite everyone in Long Beach to come out and play in some real snow and see what great things Long Beach has to offer at this one-of-a-kind community event,” O’Donnell said. “Previous snow day events have seen more than 6,500 people in attendance this year’s promises to be even bigger.”
Councilmember Patrick O’Donnell will host the annual Fourth District Snow Day event on Saturday, Feb. 26 at Long Beachs Whaley Park (5620 Atherton Street) from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Snow day is completely free and open to the public. Guests can park for free at California State University, Long Beachs adjacent Parking Lot 14 on Atherton Street.
