If you and your family are looking to have a snow day sometime over the next few weeks, you’re in luck because chances are some fresh powder is coming to a park near you.

The Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation is hauling 40 tons of fresh snow, two 35-foot sled runs and play areas to several parks stretching from East Los Angeles to Covina for free snow day events.

There will also be live music, crafts for kids, food, holiday photos and do-it-yourself adult classes.

Organizers said this is all part of the department’s “Parks After Dark” program, which offers extended park hours and special activities at 33 parks countywide.
