Jan 29, 2018
The City of Greater Sudbury, in partnership with the Healthy Kids Community Challenge, invites residents to a free outdoor family celebration on Snow Day, Saturday, February 3, 2018 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. near the Grace Hartman Amphitheatre in Bell Park.
Activities include snowshoeing, hiking, storytelling, pony rides, sledding, a petting zoo, snowboarding, a maze and much more. A warm-up area, equipped with change tables and nursing stations, will be available for families with babies and young children.
Kina Gbezhgomi Child & Family Services will offer a campfire for warmth, and to provide a comfortable place for storytelling and bannock making. Free nutritious snacks and plenty of water will be available throughout the day.
Transportation to Bell Park will be free of charge aboard Greater Sudbury Transit when passengers inform the bus operator they are attending Snow Day. Free sleds, helmets and equipment for activities will be available for loan at the Bell Park entrance.
The Healthy Kids Community Challenge is a key part of Ontario's Healthy Kids Strategy, a cross-government initiative launched to promote children's health. Approximately every nine months, a new theme is chosen to guide participating communities. The current theme, Power Off and Play, encourages children and families to build a balanced day filled with plenty of physical activity, face-to-face interactions, family time and fun.
The schedule of Snow Day activities may change dependent on weather conditions. Please check the website or associated social media pages for updates.
