FULTON, NY – CNY Arts Center is gearing up for its fourth Annual Snow Day on January 31 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The family fun event will be held at the center’s new location on the CCC Campus at 11 River Glen Plaza.
“We’re so excited to host Snow Day in our new location,” said Nancy Fox, director. “We’re already saving huge piles of snow for building snowmen, for a snow sculpture contest, snow bank sliding and more. With the huge parking lot we’re creating a winter playground with room for outdoor snow games, snow painting, and snow fun.”
Family fun will also include a children’s carnival, art projects, entertainment and food. CNY Arts Center hopes to revive winter fun and establish a new tradition for the community.
Organizers of the children’s carnival are planning a day of fun with a snowman bean bag toss, face painting, ice fishing, snowmen ring toss and more.
Frosty the Snowman will be on hand along with other friendly creatures. Children will have snow themed art projects to complete, step into a snowman backdrop and have their picture taken, play for prizes in carnival games and more in a day that promises to be as much fun indoors as outdoors.
Hearty snow lovers can register online or the day of for the snow sculpture contest by 11 a.m. and create any snow sculpture, creature or snowman.

At 1p.m., judges will award first, second and third place winners who will have their picture taken with Frosty the Snowman, also in attendance.
Concessions will offer up hot dogs, hot chocolate, donuts, and more.
