Have a snow day in Union Square on Thursday, February 9
Wed Feb 8 2012
It's been a relatively warm winter in New York City, but that's all about to change! The NYC Parks Department, the Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA), Ski Areas of New York (SANY) and I Love New York are teaming up to bring New Yorkers a much-needed snow day—minus the inclement weather or the need to dig out the car. After ORDA blankets Union Square in the white stuff using man-made machines, parents can learn about winter activities in New York State including snowmobiling, ziplining and snowshoeing, while on-site instructors tote kids ages 3 to 7 around a special snowboarding section sponsored by Burton Snowboards Riglet. Thu Feb 9 7am--2pm. Union Square Park (South East Side at 14th St). Ages 3 to 7.
