Enjoy the Snow (Again) at The Science Mill Snow Day Event in Johnson City

By  | 

Did you get to enjoy the “snow day” last week, when parts of Texas experienced anywhere from 1 to 7 inches of the white stuff? Well, if that left you hankering for even more snow, make plans to head to Johnson City on Saturday, January 20 to partake in the Science Mill’s Snow Day event.

Join the fun as the backyard at The Science Mill (called the Science & Art Park) is transformed into a winter wonderland of science with 20 tons of snow! Launch snowballs with the giant catapult, throw a snowball and track it with radar, watch a real-life ice sculptor or race a mini pine box derby car down a huge ice luge – there’s fun for all ages at this event.  

Food vendors will be on hand to provide much-needed snacks. Or, plan to eat at the on-site Lady Bird Lane Cafe, which is a small farm-to-table restaurant dedicated to offering lunches using local and regional ingredients. They focus on organic and all-natural products in their creative menu that offers options to fit most dietary needs with vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dishes.

The Science Mill is a family destination that offers a fun, interactive learning environment for all ages. Through cutting-edge exhibits, games, and programs, the non-profit science museum expands understanding and appreciation of science in everyday life. Housed in a historic 1880s mill, the Science Mill features more than 40 interactive, world-class exhibits, a 3D theater, and an on-site café.

Johnson City was the hometown of President Lyndon Johnson and is located less than 50 miles from Austin and about 60 miles from San Antonio, in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.
