But then, without warning, the unthinkable happened: Real snow descended upon the metro Atlanta area and beyond.
Six Flags' hands were tied. The park canceled the event, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Thankfully, the irony was not lost on Six Flags. "Talk about the irony there, @AJCLife!," the park tweeted. "Snowball fight canceled today. Park is closed. Will reopen on Sunday for #HolidayInThePark."
