GREAT RIVER - As adults across the Island headed for the shovels and snowblowers, many kids chose to pick up their sleds and head for the hills.

At Heckscher Park in Great River, young kids fearlessly slid down the steep slope. Some adventurous sliders said they tried to hit the snow bumps on their way down.

Plenty of kids also gathered for fun in the snow on Newbridge Road Park in Bellmore.
