Kids and their adults came out to enjoy a fresh, albeit manmade, snowfall in North Berkeley Sunday. Snowballs were thrown, snowmen were crafted, photos were taken with the resident Snow Queen and, generally, a good time was had by all.

The event, on Shattuck Avenue between Rose and Vine streets, was also slated to offer free DIY crafts for kids, hot cider and ginger snaps courtesy of Andronico’s, musicians, dancers, and a balloon twister.

Contributing photographer Nancy Rubin was there to document the event.

The seventh annual Snow Day in Berkeley was sponsored by the North Shattuck Association in conjunction with Coldwell Banker of Berkeley, Andronico’s Community Markets, M. Lowe & Co., Thornwall Properties, Left Coast Lit, and Buy Local Berkeley.
