We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a new event for Dogs and their carers with the assistance of the RSPCA Queensland . The event will be held on from Friday the 19th of June to Sunday the 21st of June at the RSPCA Shelter at Wacol with all profits going to the RSPCA. Go to our new website at www.snow4dogs.com for details.
We are planning something special for everyone in Brisbane this winter who never get a chance to see Falling snow.
Bucceri Snow Making will provide us with their latest technology in real falling snow and we are hoping to get the approval of South Bank to create the falling snow flakes outside our Snow4kids venue at the South Bank Piazza at set times daily.
People of all ages will be able to experience, photograph and see real falling snow flakes. It will be a must see occasion and may never be repeated in Brisbane again. We will have more news soon.
Brisbane will be the only location in the world where you will be guaranteed to see the snow fall every day from June 29 to July 14 2019.
The snow produced at Snow4kids is created daily by machines from Bucceri Snow Making Pty Ltd. Brisbane is very lucky that the company is located locally and this is the reason that we can provide low ticket prices for our customers.
The Bucceri company was created in Brisbane and has been making snow at South Bank since 1988 when it created the snow for the Swiss Pavilion at World Expo88. The snow making equipment used at Snow4kids is fully automatic and the equipment costs over $500,000 US dollars to buy and can make around 100 cubic metres of snow per day. The snow is made from fresh Brisbane tap water only and the water that melts can be used for irrigation in the Parklands.
Similar Bucceri snow machines are used in Indoor ski centres and ski resorts around the world to guarantee early season snow for skiing.
In other Australian States snow is produced by Bucceri machines to make snow for events! The price to buy this snow is $300 per cubic metre for snow delivered to events such as the Sydney or Melbourne Ski Show.
If the Snow4kids Event did not receive a special low rate from Bucceri Snow Making Pty Ltd, then the ticket price would be much higher!
The cost of buying the snow alone to create the 2400 cubic metres of snow consumed at our event each winter would be $720,000 just for the snow.
That means that the snow making cost per ticket holder would be over $40 for each entry just to have the snow delivered before the cost of spreading and grooming the snow.
So we are lucky to have Bucceri Snow Making subsidising our snow making costs to allow such a favorable ticket price that are normally between $16 to $21 for 1 hour entry to the event as without them the cost of the ticket price entry would be double this price or higher.
