WINTER JAM FESTIVAL CANCELLED DUE TO SNOWSTORM
What perfect timing: Mother Nature is planning to dump up to a foot of snow on NYC Friday night and Saturday, just in time for the annual Winter Jam festival of FREE events in Central Park, including sledding and learning to ski and snowboard on snow from snowmaking guns if Mother Nature doesn’t come through.
