The forecast will be for snow on Saturday, Jan. 26, when the Fullerton Parks and Recreation Department hosts a “Snow Day” at the Brea Dam Recreation Area.

Tons of the frosty stuff will be delivered to the dam to enable youngsters to sled, make snow people, and have old-fashioned snowball battles.

The chilly fun will be held from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., and the recreation area is located at 1700 N. Harbor Blvd., between the YMCA and Golfers’ Paradise.

Additional parking and shuttles will be available at the parking structure behind the American Automobile Association building on Harbor.

The event will feature three 75-foot sled runs, as well as a special toddler sled run for children 5 and under. There will also be a Kids’ Play Area, a “Blast Zone,” a family campfire, and crafts and games for a nominal fee.

Food and refreshments will be available for purchase.

Children are advised to wear warm clothes and gloves. Sleds will be provided by the city.

Space is limited to 900 persons, and early registrations are recommended.

Advance registration fee for the event is $12/person for Fullerton residents and $15/ person for non-residents. Children under 2 years of age will be admitted free. Admission will be $15/person for Fullerton residents and $18/person for non-residents the day of the event.
