Winter Jam, an annual winter sports event in Central Park, is coming back this Saturday, and the city brought out all the big guns for it. Specifically, the city is using snowmaking guns to spray the wet stuff all over the fields in Rumsey Playfield, the concert venue around 70th Street toward the east side of the park.
On Friday morning, the Parks Department will be grooming the snow, and doing a snowshoe demonstration. It will almost be like we had a real winter.
The event, which is free, will include events like snowshoeing, flag football, sledding, and… ice bowling? What are we, Canadians?
