Snow is not much fun in February, but more welcome in August.

Meadows Christian Fellowship will stage real "blizzards" Friday evening, Aug. 1, before the showing of its annual community movie, "Frozen." Viewers can wear shorts and sandals, but bring your gloves!

Starting at 5:30 p.m., Snow Making by Sturm from Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, will create a blizzard every 15 minutes until 8:30 p.m. when it will be time to get ready for the 8:45 p.m. movie.

Sturm, known for its work in movies and commercials, will use 8 tons of ice to make and blow snow.

"They can make snow up to 105 degrees," said Laura Celmer, ministry coordinator for the church.

"We want to give something back to the community," she said. "And make the community aware of our church."

Meadows Christian Fellowship is at 2401 Kirchoff Road in Rolling Meadows,
