An event called “Winter Wonderland” descended Saturday on central Glendale, bringing with it games, rides and even some trucked-in snow for local families.

The Armenian Relief Society of Western USA organized the fun-filled weekend at St. Mary's Armenian Apostolic Church in effort to raise funds for its social service, disaster relief, youth and after-school programs, which are offered to local residents and international groups.

Children at the event got to take dives onto two large snow slides and ride a Ferris wheel amid live music and international dance performances.

The festivities were scheduled to continue today from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the church, 500 S. Central Ave. Amusement rides were to start at 1 p.m., with admission at $3.
