Springvale Snow Fest

80 tonnes of real snow will be shipped in for this one-day winter wonderland.

Springvale Snow Fest returns this winter, setting its frosty self up on Buckingham Avenue in the midst of Springvale. Complete with real snow, rides and food stalls, Snow Fest takes place on Sunday, July 29, running from midday till 7pm.

Shipping 80 tonnes of real snow over from Mt Buller, it'll be like you've hit the real slopes for a day (but avoided the fights in the car over directions, as well as the ski hire fees). Over the course of the day there'll be live ice sculpting, live stage shows, amusement park rides, and plenty of food stalls to keep you nourished and warm inside. Also, FYI, there will be huskies running around, partaking in photoshoots with festival goers.

There's a silent igloo disco on the agenda if you've ever wanted to tick that off your bucket list, plus a giant slide for kids and bigger kids, like you, the adult who will never not love giant slides. Everything is finished off with a fireworks display finale at the end of the day, so keep riding that slide until the end so you don't miss it.
