Fun in the Sun and Snow

UNIVERSAL CITY — This year’s Snowfest boasted more rides, more vendors, more food, more entertainment, and more all-around fun than any previous year. As kids’ karaoke filled the park, guests enjoyed new attractions that included fast-spinning rides for the whole family and giant “hamster balls” which human occupants used to race each other down a short track, as well as more than a dozen favorite rides and attractions from previous years. Those in attendance also had the opportunity to meet Yoosi Bear, the Snowfest mascot, and the ever-popular H-E-Buddy. Both posed for pictures all afternoon. The event was made possible by the City as well as by corpo – rate donors such as H-E-B, Waste Management, TexStar Bank, Bahama Bucks, McCoy’s, Coldwell Banker [Lindsey Ashcroft, REALTOR pictured above left represented Coldwell Banker at this year’s event.], Cricket Wireless, Kung Jung Mu Sul, Edwards Aquifer, CPS, HMT Engineering and HDR. More than 100 community volunteers from neighborhood churches and businesses contributed their time to assist those who attended Snowfest and help them have a great day. Virtually the entire Public Works staff also facilitated the event by helping with logistics and making sure drivers got in and out of the parking areas with relative ease. Numerous local organizations and restaurants such as Kajun Kuisine sold a wide array of food, while a variety of vendors offered wares ranging from handbags to jewelry to baby items to banking information and much more. The Public Works Department, under the direction of Randy Luensmann, and the Parks and Recreation
Commission are already working on making next year’s event even better. Mark your calendars now for the 2016 Snowfest on Saturday, February 13.
