As predicted, Beaufort saw some snow on the ground on Sunday afternoon. Well, not the real white stuff falling from the sky, but close enough. The Festival of Trees in Port Royal hosted a Snow Day on Sunday for all of the kids to enjoy.
Triangle Ice brought in more than 10,000 lbs of snow and blew it all over a portion of the yard next to The Shed on Paris Avenue, where the event was held, turning a corner of the lot into a winter wonderland of fluffy, white snow. At times, it was an outright blizzard.
Hundreds of local kids came to play in it and throw a few snowballs… and some just sat and marveled at it, having never seen it before.
“We wanted to make this year’s event super-fun for everyone, including the kids,” said Lindsay Roberg, Executive Director of Friends of Caroline Hospice, the event’s benefactor.
“Hundreds of kids came to have fun, and fun is what it’s all about. All the kids had a great time and it felt a little bit like Christmas We can’t wait to do it again next year,” she said.
Hear that? It’ll be snowing again next year in Beaufort too. No matter what the Old Farmer’s Almanac says.
