Sioux City kids got the day off school Tuesday thanks to a teacher work day and some decided to celebrate by playing in the snow.
Cone Park added a special afternoon session day to give those kids something to do.
About 50 to 60 kids showed up to take advantage of the opportunity.
The city said the special session was added to allow more people to enjoy the park.
“I mean we’re a park. We want to be open as much as we can as long as people are going to be out here,” said Recreation Coordinator John Byrnes. “And what a perfect idea to be out here and open on a day that’s as nice as this and school’s out. Get some people out here and have some fun.”
Byrnes said that the park is looking into adding more sessions like this in the future.
