The weather forecast Wednesday, Dec. 4 is calling for snow in the Crescent City, thanks to Loyola University New Orleans. Twenty tons of manufactured snow will blanket the Marquette Horseshoe lawn fronting historic St. Charles Avenue, creating a winter wonderland for faculty, staff, students and neighbors.

The annual Sneaux@Loyno event, sponsored by the Office of Co-Curricular Programs and the Loyola Student Government Association, will take place from 6-9 p.m.

Festivities include Christmas cookie decorating, holiday ornament and button making as well as opportunities for pictures with Santa and his elves. Christmas carolers will offer music throughout the night and hot chocolate will be available. The first 150 guests will also receive free T-shirts.
