This is the Hardin Center’s seventh year to host Let it Snow. The highlight of the children’s exhibit is an area filled with a material that resembles and feels like real snow.

Children can play in the snow, slide down a snow slide, play in the ball pit, and slide around in their socks on an ice rink. The snow slide is made from a slick material that competition skiers use during the off season and the ice rink is a polished plastic surface that hockey players use for practice. Let it Snow is primarily designed for younger children, ages toddler through the third grade. Regular all-day admission for Let it Snow is $8 per person and includes Imagination Place Children’s Museum. Admission is free for Hardin Center members and for children under 24 months.
