Snow day in Milton excites youngsters


Friendship Park sees snow in summer


August 12, 2013


MILTON, Ga. -- Many are complaining that we've had too much rain this summer, but the City of Milton was thinking they didn't have enough snow.

As part of the city's free "Family, Fun, Flicks and Flurries" summer event series, snow tubing was available at Friendship Community Park Saturday, Aug. 10. Chilly technology provided by Snow Kings turned 8,000 pounds of crushed ice into a 10 foot high, 45 foot long, snow-covered slope, the perfect venue for snow tubing. Almost everyone who tried it said they enjoyed it, and many got back in line to do it again.

For the young children there, the blow-over from the snow gun was their first experience playing with ice and snow. Some parents who didn't want to miss the fun rode down the slope with their child on their lap.

Gavin Lynch, 9, summed it up perfectly with, "That snow tubing was awesome. I'm having a great time."

Along with the snow tubing, local vendors set up booths at the park. Be Dazzle-Do created wild, decorated hair styles, The School Place in Roswell provided free arts and crafts and Sound Solutions kept spirits high and fingers snapping with the great music that was played during the entire event.

Additionally, the Milton Fire Department brought a truck and let attendees get into the cab. Two civic-minded young women from Girl Scout Troop 27332 were at the park selling homemade baked goods to raise money to make improvements at Friendship Park.
