Over a four hour stretch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Garfield Park, children, most with smiling faces, were treated to sled runs, a snow play area, and a Tot Land for the very young, all given a chance to play in the white stuff trucked in for the day.

Tickets priced at a nominal $10, and $15 the day of the event provided plenty of fun for all participants. A wristband was good for 45 minutes of access to snow play and sled runs.

“It was great to see so many families enjoying an event that provides so much fun,” said South Pasadena Community Services Director Sheila Pautsch. “We had great weather for it this year and it was wonderful to see a lot of smiling faces. Snow Day is one of our best attractions of the year. Kids love it.”
