This year there will actually be two snow mounds, a North Pole and a South Pole, for kids to enjoy and play in, and new holiday activities will be also be featured at Snowfest. The Mrs. Claus Bling Fling is a holiday handcrafted jewelry show presented by the Pembroke Pines Arts and Culture Advisory Board and the Parks and Recreation Department. A portion of the proceeds from this event at Snowfest will be used for public art projects throughout the City. A great place to find that perfect gift, the show features handcrafted jewelry from a variety of artists. Mrs. Claus will be very busy that day because she will also have the Mrs. Claus Kitchen, sponsored by Whole Foods, where kids can make reindeer food and Santa’s delicious Trail Mix.
