WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Kids in South Florida had a chance to enjoy a little taste of winter on a sunny, 80-degree day in West Palm Beach on Sunday.

The Hilton hotel at CityPlace opened its doors to people in the area for their free "Snow Place Like Hilton" event complete with sledding, snow, and hot apple cider.

“It's winter time, so a lot of the kids here don't get to experience this kind of stuff, so what better way to do this than have some sledding in 80-degree weather,” said Hilton West Palm Beach General Manager John Parkinson.

“We've been having some hot cider, sledding down the hill and just getting a little taste of winter. It's a lot of fun,” said Adam Reback, who attended the event.

Organizers say they hope to turn this event into an annual tradition.
