Garfield Park became a winter wonderland on Saturday as the City hosted its annual “Snow Day” event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on January 20th.
Families gathered at the north end of the park where there were three snow areas set up; one was called Tot Land and featured a large patch of snow surrounded by bales of hay. It was the perfect area for photo ops with the giant snowman that was built as well as playful snowball fights. The other two snow areas were sled runs, one for little kids and one which was a bit more substantial, both of which had children and adults squealing with delight.
Also on hand was Boy Scout Troop 342 who offered smores cooked over a campfire, inflatable jumpy houses and Italian Ice for sale. Said Dean Serwin, Troop 342’s committee chairperson, “there is nothing quite like the expression of a little kid tasting their first smore! At first they just don’t know what to make of it and then they just light up!”
All in all, it was a very successful Snow Day for South Pasadena families, one that was enjoyed by a whole heck of a lot of South Pasadenan kids.
