Frost Fest returns to Sienna Plantation 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17, bringing 50,000 pounds of snow, an outdoor ice skating rink, the world’s largest rocking horse and much more. The event is free and open to the public.

Sienna Plantation will unleash a flurry of snow-filled fun from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17, at Frost Fest.

The Fort Bend community’s annual winter festival brings 50,000 pounds of snow to the Village of Sawmill Lake for sledding, snow angels and snowball fights. The event is free and open to the public. Frost Fest was initially set for Dec. 3, but was rescheduled due to expected heavy rain.

“People are going to want to make sure they have their cameras and cell phones ready because there will be ample opportunities for great pictures,” said Alvin San Miguel, general manager of Sienna. “In addition to all of the snow, parents can get photos of their children on the world’s largest rocking horse and in front of the world’s largest snowman.”

This year, Frost Fest also features “Snowzilla Jr.,” a wildly popular giant inflatable that functions like a snow covered hill and is the only toboggan slide in the United States. There will also be an ice skating rink, face painters, ornament making and holiday music. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be on hand to greet guests.

Model homes will be open for touring with inflatable pals out front. Families can also give an animal the gift of a forever home by stopping by the Fort Bend County Animal Shelter booth at the Newmark Homes’ model, 9827 Cameron Way.

Finally, hungry snowbirds can choose from an array of food trucks including Flaming Patties, Mary had a Little Party, Main-ly Sandwiches, Pocket to Me and Tila’s Taco Truck — which will also be serving adult beverages.

Guests can park their cars and take the shuttle from Ridge Point High School, 500 Waters Lake Boulevard. Students from Ridge Point also will be volunteering during the event.

Frost Fest is just one of many festivals Sienna Plantation hosts each year. Past events have included Oktoberfest and the Canine Carnival.
