Kiddie Christmas Snow in Civic Center

In his final days as San Francisco Mayor last year, Gavin Newsom hosted a public holiday party in Civic Center, complete with manufactured snow on a hill for a children's sledding adventure (click here for an account).

Though not a big fan of Newsom, I thought the event was charming and hoped it would be continued as an annual event.

Evidently the administration of Ed Lee has been listening to me, even though I did not support them for election, and they just brought the holiday party back for an entire weekend.

The event was still fairly unpublicized and underpopulated, which was just as well for those waiting in lines with their kids and grandchildren to sled down the hill.

The rules were simple and explicit.

You had to be a little kid to sled down the hill...

...but also big enough that you could make the scary ride on your own.

If you have children, keep an eye out for the event next year.

Shorter than the Santa hat, old enough to drive a sled. Where do they GET these people?
