A new Christmas Island Style tradition in the making is happening on Saturday, December 15 at Veteran’s Community Park. ‘Snowmania’ is set to bring 40 tons of snow to the park, along with games, slides and Santa, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
“We wanted to do something special for kids,” explains Steve Stefanides, the chairperson behind Christmas Island Style. The organization has been saving up for about five or six years. “It costs about $7,000: you’re bringing tractor trailers and chunks of ice to make the snow.”
Christmas Island Style has planned for three piles of snow divided between children’s age groups. There will also be a slide and other inflatables. Santa will make an appearance and the Optimist Club will be selling hot dogs and other refreshments.
