Outdoor ice skating on the Riverfront! The Delaware Children’s Museum offered that and more at their first annual Snowflake Festival on Dec 28. The  outdoor rink looked just like an ice rink, but this one had a synthetic surface that was just right for skates but wouldn’t melt. The winter fest also included several Nutcracker performances from Wilmington’s First State Ballet, a sand box filled with artificial snow where kids could make snow angels, ice cube luge runs (to test physics principles), experiments with blubber gloves in icy cold water, and tables where kids could make marshmallow igloos and  snowflake ornaments. They even had food and coffee trucks so parents and kids could linger outdoors all night. “We were really pleased with the ideas we were able to offer at our first Snowflake Festival,” said Nicole Kindbeiter, director of marketing and communications at the DCM.
