Even if winter doesn’t bring snow to the Texas Gulf Coast, Edna’s Brackenridge Park will on Jan. 20 for the eighth annual Brackenridge Winter Carnival and Snow Day. Every year, the city hosts a day of winter wonder for residents who wouldn’t normally get to experience the icy thrill of the season. The forecast predicts 80,000 pounds of snow—enough to make plenty of snowballs, snowmen, and snow angels in the park’s two snow play areas. Additionally, guests can experience two snow slides (a 30-foot slide provides sledding experience for kids of all ages, but the younger crowd can also enjoy a tamer 20-foot slide), carnival games, inflatables, a s’more-making station, face painting, hayrides, and concessions. Camp on-site the night before for half-off admission.
