Winter Snow Fest Returns This Weekend in Diamond Bar

Pantera Park will be blanketed in snow this Saturday as the popular Winter Snow Fest returns to town.

Combine hours of holiday entertainment with dozens of children’s crafts and games...then throw in 90 tons of snow for playing and sledding, and you get the City’s annual Winter Snow Fest!

That's right, it's time again for Diamond Bar to celebrate winter with a day of snow fun at Pantera Park.

This year's event is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 19, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Some of the features of the day include:

  • two snow play areas
  • four snow-covered sledding hills
  • snowman building
  • "several" activity and game sections
  • photo opportunities with "Flurry the Sledding Penguin"

The city says that in addition to food and refreshment stands, attendees will also be able to enjoy "nonstop entertainment by local performers" on a stage.  

It does not cost anything to get into the event, however, it costs $5 for unlimited sledding access, and $1 for tickets to participate in up to 4 games/crafts.

"Parents are encouraged to dress their children in closed-toed shoes and gloves," the city's newsletter stated.  

No outside sleds will be allowed at the event. Free shuttle service to and from Pantera Park and the surrounding neighborhood will be available regularly throughout event hours.

We went to this event on january 19, 2013. We paid $10 for 2 wrist bands and my husband and I accompanied each of our daughter 4yrs and 2yrear old down the show hill and both of us got hurt. The top layer of the skin on my left hand was scraped off by holding on to the sled and brushed against the ice going downthe snow hill. When my husband went down with our 2 year old there was a big hole towards the end of the snow hill that made him get bumped off. He hurt his tail bone and the skinon his arm got scraped off as well. We paid $10 to go down that slope once and to get hurt. The city should really caution people and require gloves to participate. My hand is badly hurt and I wished that I didn't go to this event.

Many parents were telling their little ones to hold on to the sled. Well if anyone holds on without gloves their hands are sure to get hurt. The top layer of my hand got skinned off and hur badly. The city should really be more responible in cautioning people. We had no warning what so ever.
