A Snow Day was held on Feb. 4 at Red Dam Baptist Church in Hardeeville.

Calvin Smith, children’s pastor at Red Dam Baptist Church, said the third annual Snow Day is a great way for church members to get together during the winter months and have some fun.

The Iceman Ice Company from Jacksonville, Fla., crushed and sprayed 7 tons of “snow” onto an artificial ramp and a separate play area for an estimated 300-500 church members, adults and children, to have some wintery fun during the three-hour event.

Also on hand giving the event a bazaar-type atmosphere were hotdogs and chili, cotton candy and homemade pies. An inflatable rock wall for the younger children to play on was also available.
