One day in January 1981, a light dusting of snow fell on Miami. The bizarre weather wasnt significant enough to affect the city in any major way, but it was just enough to give each resident the bragging rights to a South Florida anomaly -- a white winter. And just in case you missed it, for one day only, the annual Let It Snow holiday celebration at Gulfstream Park is bringing 1981 back. According to the parks VP of strategic development, Aaron Perry, today will be way more fun than any hurricane youve ever seen.
Its just going to be an amazing day. Its going to begin with 10 tons of snow that kids and families can come play in. Theres going to be all sorts of games for the kids, face painting, balloons, the whole shebang, he promises. Its just going to be a fun day of celebration, and its going to culminate with a performance from Jon Secada. Jon Secada and a winter wonderland? Well meet you by the snowman. The festivities are free from 1 to 5 p.m., but before you enter, you must register at www.litemiami.com. Secada hits the stage at 6, and tickets cost 20 bucks.
