Exactly one year ago today, organizers of the first-ever New Year’s Eve event for Fargo high school students, called “Snow Bash,” were forced to call off the event in the face of a nasty winter storm that was still a day away from the F-M metro.
Snow Bash has returned for 2011. Ironically, the extended outlook is more favorable to a grass fire than a New Year’s Eve blizzard. The brown ground, however, should not disappoint. All activities and events – minus the sledding – will still take place between Dike West and the downtown Fercho YMCA, begining at 9:00 p.m. on December 31. Outdoor activities include a bonfire and lighted basketball courts; indoor includes open gym, swimming, games, pizza and beverages, and more.
Schools invited to Snow Bash include Fargo North, South, Davies and Woodrow Wilson; Shanley; and Oak Grove. Students must show a school or other photo ID to be admitted. Door prize drawings will start at midnight, winners must be present to claim prizes. Activities will conclude at 1:00 a.m.
- Car-pooling is encouraged; parking will be available at the YMCA, Island Park Ramp, and the Dike West Chalet lot; on-street parking will also be available
- Prizes and funding donations are still being accepted from businesses and individuals; for more information, contact Fargo South High School PTSA Snow Bash Chairperson Phyllis Poss at 218-790-7238 or Fargo South High School Resource Officer Chris Potter at 701-730-8863
