Dec. 17 was a great day for sledding following the first snowfall of the winter 2020.
With close to a foot of fresh snow throughout the Lehigh Valley, some families made their way to the closest hills in their neighborhood to take advantage of the first real snow in two years.
One such venue was the Lehigh County Sports Fields in Cetronia.
With lots of hills and easy access to roads and parking, local residents were treated to a delightful time with their children and friends.
Flying down the hill at the Lehigh County Sports Fields, Cetronia, is Hayden Westring, 9, of South Whitehall Township.
Hayden Westring's friend, Miles Dietrick, 8, of South Whitehall, was next down the hill.

Carly Kudryk, 7, South Whitehall Township, was pleased she went farther than any of her friends on her sled.
John Dowdell, of Upper Macungie Township, brought back some old school memories with his Flexible Flyer Racer sled. He believes this sled is over 100 years old. Daughter Sarah Atiyeh and granddaughter Camilla, 3. were along for the ride.
