Making good on a promise to simulate a winter wonderland as part of a fund raiser for student scholarships, UCSB First, a committee of the UCSB Alumni Association, brought snow, suds and s’mores to Storke Plaza on Tuesday.  Two tons of ice were brought in to shave down into faux snow and chill the ground as a bubble machine spewed simulation snowflakes into the air. Meanwhile, hungrier spectators roasted marshmallows over lit gel fuel to make the campfire snack, while the rest had mini snowball fights and made tiny snowmen.
