FAMILIES will be able to forget about the recent heatwave at Ipswich's first Snowfest event tomorrow.
Attendees will be able to experience snow at the Ipswich Showgrounds, and can tube, toboggan, build snowmen, make snow angels and more.
Organiser Ray Hunter said he was proud to host the event.
"This is the first time we'll hold an event in Ipswich, and we're excited," Mr Hunter said.
"A lot of children will be able to see snow for the first time."
Mr Hunter said Snowfest would be held under a marquee, with extra entertainment provided by BMX riders.
"It's the first time and it's very hot, so people need to be realistic - we're going to start small and plan to come back in winter."

Snowfest will run from 10am to 5pm, and tickets priced at $10 will allow attendees two 10-minute sessions on the snow.
Family passes available, and food and drink will be for sale.
Enclosed shoes are essential, and attendees should expect to get wet clothes, so pack a change of clothes.
