Snow Day & WinterFest Bring Wintry Fun To New York City Kids!
This past Saturday, New York City's youth took to the parks for fun, free snowy activities hosted by NYC Parks & Recreation. Snow Day sites hosted free supervised outdoor recreation and winter fun for youth, including sledding, snowman and snow angel contests, music and complimentary hot chocolate. The fun took place outside of the Hunts Point Recreation Center in the Bronx, Prospect Park in Brooklyn, Riverside Park in Manhattan, Juniper Valley Park in Queens, and Clove Lakes Park on Staten Island.
At the same time, Bronx youth were enjoying WinterFest at the Hunts Point Recreation Center. There was a full line-up of programming, including performances from the St. Mary’s and Hunts Point dance troupes, the vocal talents of local teens Tatiana and Love Star, and the local rock music group The Point 3 Band.
Attendees were also able to shake their hips to a Zumba aerobics class and a hula hoop competition. A free karate clinic was also held with Sensei Hiram Diaz, as he demonstrated basic self-defense techniques. If that wasn't enough, they day also included arts & crafts, fitness tips, board games, raffles, and much more.
