FULTON – CNY Arts Center and Cayuga Community College have joined forces to present the fifth annual Family Fun Snow Day January 30 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Arts Center on the CCC Campus at 11 River Glen Drive.
At the request of Fulton Dean John Lamphere, the Alumni Association and Student Government Organization are working with Snow Day coordinator Diane Sokolowski on the details.
“We’re delighted to be sharing the Snow Day planning and coordination of efforts on the fifth anniversary of this popular event,” said Nancy Fox, Arts Center director. “We’re excited to have students work alongside our volunteers to oversee games and activities, as well as have the college interaction for families to explore and investigate while enjoying the fun at Snow Day. It’s a great day to visit with your friends and neighbors while the kids have fun and strengthen community relations at the same time.”
Organizers of the children’s carnival are planning snow themed games and art projects.
Children can step into a Snowman backdrop for a photo op, play for prizes in carnival games and more in a day that promises great indoor family fun.
Carnival tickets will be available at the door for a nominal fee and every child is guaranteed winning prize tickets to redeem for stuffed animals, bead necklaces, toy cars and so much more.
Concessions will offer popcorn, chili cheese dogs, hot chocolate, donuts and more.
The cast of the upcoming musical Seussical Jr will perform an excerpt from the show at 11:30 a.m. and Seuss characters will visit with children throughout the day.
Any child donating a Dr. Seuss book, new or gently used, will receive a free snack coupon for the concession booth.
Books will be donated to local Rotary clubs for worldwide distribution.
“We’re sure this fifth annual Family Fun Snow Day will be the best Snow Day yet. Another great day of family fun!” Fox said.
