    However cold it was on Saturday, January 4, families flocked to the Parks Department's snow day festivities—sledding and free cocoa—in parks across the city. Talk about some crazy weather and crazy timing. The night of the first day kids returned to school after a 12-day winter break, it snows, temperatures plummet and at 4am a snow day is called. The NYC Parks Department often holds fun snow days of its own at parks in all five boroughs, but due to the cold, it decided to postpone them to Saturday, January 4. Unfortunately the cold weather stuck around, but that didn't deter lots of fun-seeking kids and their families from bundling up and taking advantage of the sledding, snowangel making, snowmen and free cocoa. Click through the pics, courtesy of the Parks Department, in our slide show above and we know you'll be inspired to make it to the next parks event. Something tells us it could be very soon...RECOMMENDED: Download our January 2013 events calendar You might also like 60...

    Asphalt Green's Snowman Showdown

    The kids may have the day off from school today, but the traditional Parks Department snow day activities will be held tomorrow in parks in all five boroughs. Happy snow day! We've been trying to find out if the NYC Parks Department was planning to hold its fun, outdoor snow day activities today, and now we have the answer: No, it's not, but it is tomorrow! (By the way, Asphalt Green is not holding its snowman-building event today either, due to the extreme cold weather.)RECOMMENDED: Download our January 2014 calendarOn Saturday, January 4, families can head to one of five locations in the city—one in each borough, to be exact—for free and supervised snowy activities for kids, including sledding (sleds are available to borrow), snow angel and snowman contests, music and free hot chocolate between 11am and 3pm.
