Seattle hasn’t seen much snow this winter season just yet, and if you have been wishing for a downtown winter wonderland, you’re in luck! According to Mynorthwest, the second Saturday in January this year has been designated as Snow Day, and January 12th couldn’t come soon enough! An event sponsored by groups such as Top Pot Doughnuts, Surf Incubator, Growthmind Goods among others, has been organized to benefit the Boys & Girls Club to possibly set a Guinness world record for largest snowball fight in history, right under the space needle.
162,000 lbs of snow (that’s enough to fill 34 dump trucks!) will be transported from the mountain passes to the needle, where 6,000+ people will be anxiously waiting. Snow forts will be sculpted before the games begin. Several bars and restaurants around Queen Anne will be offer special snow day drinks and grub, and there is also a pub crawl all set up, should you need some warming up after the snowy extravaganza. Everyone Seattleite is invited to join in the festivities, so mark your calendar, and visit the Snow Day website for more information.
