It’s a winter wonderland during Now Snowing in Celebration

by Banks Lee

 
Now Snowing, Central Florida’s original and longest-running “snow” event, returns to Celebration Town Center from Nov. 28 to Dec. 31, 2015. 

The event offers free parking and free admission. Approximately 350,000 guests visit Celebration during Now Snowing. 

Snow falls every night at 6, 7, 8 and 9 p.m. Now Snowing does not occur during heavy downpours or when the temperature is below 32 degrees, yes that’s right, it can be too cold to snow as the machines become inoperable at freezing temperatures.

Each year Now Snowing hosts a variety of free family-friendly concerts on Saturday Nights:
Nov. 28 – Tree Lighting Ceremony from 5 to 10 p.m.
Dec. 5 – A Celebration of Voices featuring Central Florida’s top young talent
Dec. 12 – A Countdown to Christmas featuring national recording artists
Dec. 19 – A Radio Disney Holiday Concert featuring national acts as heard on Radio Disney

Despite its nickname of “snoap”, Celebration snow is not a soap at all. In fact, it is the same special effects snow you see in movies and is non-toxic, biodegradable and yes, with enough of it, you could even make a snow angel. The snow on the ground takes three employees and almost three hours each night to prepare.

Each December, Now Snowing uses over 660 gallons of liquid snow to create the special effects snow that comes from the machines above. Each snowfall features an audio intro that has special meaning to Celebration and features the voices of Celebration Residents. In fact, the now teenage voices you hear in the final snowfall of the night were featured on the original recording over 12 years ago when they were then kids. The original audio is played each night during the 6 p.m. snow-fall.

Here’s a look at Now Snowing as featured on this week’s “Attractions Magazine -The Show”:
