Night or day, Snowking has you covered

The snowcastle’s as appealing to families as it is to people looking to party. There’s plenty to do all month. During sunny March afternoons (12-5 p.m., every day except Monday) bring the kids and hit the slide or catch a children’s play. Every Friday and Saturday evening, music hits the stage and there’s more than one art show happening for a week at a time.

To find out everything that’s happening, check the official schedule, but here are a few options to consider.
