Let it snow! Snow Day brings winter to Chandler

What’s in the forecast for Chandler, Tuesday, Dec. 27? Snow!

That’s right, there’s a 100 percent chance of snow in the heart of southeast Chandler. The Environmental Education Center is bringing a side of winter we rarely get to see by creating a winter wonderland at Veterans Oasis Park.

“This event brings together the joy and wonder of the ageless, ever-magical experience of a Snow Day,” explained Dexter Belling, event organizer. “Kids enjoy celebrating the snow with a morning of adventures – experimenting with footprints, building snow forts, creating snow angels and making snowballs.”

Bundle up the family. Break out your mittens, boots and snow hat for a day of fantastically frozen fun. Young visitors will enjoy playing in real snow and learning the science of snow. First snowfall is at 10 a.m. and features a hill for sledding, special winter-themed crafts and activities. Entry into the park and event are free. Snow will be available until it melts.

The Environmental Education Center is located at 4050 E. Chandler Heights Road. For more information, call 480-782-2895 or visit
