Snow Coming to Suisun City!

As part of the opening day of the Old World Christmas Market on Thanksgiving weekend, the Suisun City Historic Waterfront B.I.D. has partnered with the Matt Garcia Foundation to present Snow Day on the Waterfront free for children 12 and under.

Weather permitting, the snow will be available on the east end of Solano Street between Air, Land and Sea Travel and the Athenian Grill on Saturday, November 27, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“To have children play in the snow who may not otherwise have ever seen snow is an wonderful idea,” says Vince Guisande, foundation board member and B.I.D. member. “To the best of our knowledge, there has not been a snow event in the Fairfield-Suisun area.”

The 1,000 square foot snow park will be covered with about a foot of blown snow created using 20 tons of ice chopped on site by Glacier Ice of Fremont. The area will be fenced for safety reasons, and hay bales will be placed around the perimeter of the snow to provide seating for parents.

Depending on the outside temperature, the blown snow is expected to last three to five hours. As snow events do not work well in the rain, the event will be cancelled if there be rain in the forecast the day before the event.

The Matt Garcia Foundation is dedicated to supporting youth and helping to stop crime in order to build a stronger community in Solano County.
