So how does the snow work?
Thanks to technology developed by movie makers, your family can enjoy our faux snowfall in Memorial Park on our special North Pole Nights. The "fake snow" really sets the mood for Christmas shopping downtown. The material used is known as "dry snow" and is the result of a chemical process very similar to a foam machine. The result is realistic looking snow falling slowly to the ground, where it will evaporate after five to seven minutes. The snow is non-toxic and biodegradable and comes from 2 machines hat masquerade as vintage style lamp posts.
