No need to travel hours away to go to the snow this year. Snow tubing is happening at the Kern County Museum.

Thursday on "First Look with Scott Cox," museum executive director Roger Perez talked about the various Christmas activities people can enjoy at "Bakersfield Christmas Town."

"Enjoy great family time while walking around our light shows and sip some hot chocolate while you're at it," Perez said.

So what about the snow tubing?

Mike Wilbur, with the museum, said there is a snow machine that creates a 30-foot-tall mountain of snow.

Tubes are provided that "make you go fast," Wilbur said.

Besides tubing, you can take a Christmas light hay ride, tour Historic Pioneer Village at night, listen to holiday carolers and more.

Christmas Town is open from 5 to 10 p.m. every day until Jan. 4, except for Dec. 24. Admission is $12 and children 2 and under enter free. Tickets can be purchased online or at the gate.
