Winter Snow Fest
Heaps of snow - 100 tons to be exact - make for a fun and memorable time! The annual Winter Snow Fest takes place on Saturday, December 8 from 9am to 3pm at Pantera Park.
This festive, winter-themed event will feature four snow-packed sledding hills, snow play areas, games and activities for children, giveaways, food and a special appearance by "Flurry," the sledding penguin!
Admission and access to the snow play areas is free, however sledding, game and craft areas are subject to a minimal fee - $7 for unlimited sledding (signed waiver required) and $1 for up to four games/crafts. Closed-toe shoes are required. Cold weather clothing, including gloves are recommended.
How to purchase sledding wrist bands?
Sledding wristbands are limited to 800 participants. Diamond Bar residents may purchase in advance at the Diamond Bar Center, located at 1600 Grand Avenue, or online (recreation registration), starting on Monday, October 1 through Friday, December 7. Proof of residency is required. Wristbands will be available for pickup at the event.
I'm not a resident, how do I purchase a sledding wristband?
General sale of wristbands to residents and non-residents will take place on the day of the event on a first-come, first-served basis if not sold out. Due to the limited number of sledding wristbands, we recommended checking availability prior to the day of the event by contacting the Parks and Recreation Department at 909-839-7070.
The free shuttle will be in operation from 8:30am to 3:30pm. The shuttle driver will not stop at designated locations but will continuously drive though the surrounding neighborhoods picking up those walking towards the park. A designated drop off and pick up stop is located in “circle” near the Pantera Park Community Room.
Fundraising and Promotion Opportunity for Nonprofits
Local nonprofits looking for a fun way to raise awareness of, and cash for, their causes are invited to sign up to work the event as a food vendor, game booth operator, or craft area monitor. In exchange, organizations that staff the game and craft areas will receive a portion of proceeds from the wristband and game/craft card sales; food vendors keep all their profits. Deadline to apply to participate in the 2018 event is Friday, October 26.
