Families braved the rainy and cold weather Thursday night for a chance to play in the white, icy snow.

People from Jim Wells, Duval and Nueces counties, all dressed in Winter clothing took part in the Alice Echo-News Journal’s Alice Winter Wonderland Snow Day at Veterans Park. The event was sponsored by Thomas J. Henry Law Firm from Corpus Christi. Other sponsors included Pete Crisp, District Attorney Carlos Garcia and county officials.

Kids and adults waited for their turn to slide over the snow. Kids of all ages made snowmen, snow angels and had mini-snowball fights.

Adults took out their cameras and cell phones to catch videos, and pictures of the smiles across everyones faces. 

City and county officials, and local businesses helped with the festivities and Walmart passed out blankets to spectators.
