Sledges were dusted off and snowmen were built by the dozen as Huntingdonshire woke up to snow on Sunday.
Some areas saw up to 20cm of the white stuff as flurries started in the early hours of Sunday and continued into the afternoon.
The Met Office had issued an amber warning for parts of Cambridgeshire late on Saturday, with heavy snow and freezing temperatures expected.
Despite the conditions, residents across the district were quick to wrap up and head out, making the best of the wintery scenes and enjoying a snowball fight or two as well.
And there was even time to build a giant snow dog!

A spokesman for the Met Office said: “Ice has formed on some surfaces Monday morning as well as some snow falling. Some snow accumulations of 2-5cm are possible above around 100 m but at lower levels no accumulations are expected. “Instead a mixture of rain and sleet is most likely. Some injuries are possible from slips and falls on icy surfaces and there will probably be some icy patches on untreated roads and cycle paths.
“Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer and more difficult journeys.”
