Snowballs are flying from every direction leaving no one safe from experiencing the fun yet awakening shock of being hit with the condensed ball of ice.
A slide of snow is being used to full advantage as tube after tube is filled with a rider and is let to slide down as freely and as fast as one would only be able to do on hills pilled with mounds of the white powder.
Take a step back and see that the snowball wars are taking place in a small corner of field filled with green grass, and the slide yes lled with snow is inside of an uplifted trailer with bales of hay along the side to guide and stop the tubes from slid- ing o into the grass.
Yet nobody is complaining and not a frown is seen amongst the crowd as they participate and enjoy this truly Texas snow scene.
“Fun in the snow” was
a collaboration between the Transfer program and Cam- pus Activity Board of Texas A&M University- Kingsville.
The event lived up to the name and provided fun in the snow.
The students and people from the community were enjoying the pleasures of something not to typical to see in Kingsville, Texas.
Cookies, brownies and punch were provided while a DJ played music and a photo booth was being used from the ones taking a break from the snowy action.
“This is fun, it’s different. I’m having fun even though I got hit in the glasses” Christopher Brown a fresh- man jokingly says as he’s on the concrete wiping himself clean of any lingering ice.
Two snow squares are available to go and do as you please whether it be to lay down and make a snow angel or grab a st full of snow to cup in your hands and fling across to the opposite side.
One square was designated for the young and the
other for the young at heart. “Since this is mainly for
transfer students a lot of times they are older students that have families and so that’s the reason we have two squares set up for the kids,” Martie De La Paz a coordinator of the event said about the two spaces lled with snow for people to enjoy.
The transfer program puts on multiple events such as “Fun in the snow” throughout the year for transfer students to come out and enjoy what the school and community can o er.
