Armonk Celebrates Frosty the Snowman
November 21, 2017
The annual homecoming of America’s favorite Frosty the Snowman will be held in his hometown of Armonk this Sunday, November 26. Steve Nelson, who was the lyricist of the classic holiday song, was a long-time resident of Armonk.
The annual Frosty Day Parade is scheduled for 4 p.m., rain, snow, or shine. The parade will travel from Old Route 22, north to Main Street and Maple Avenue, and then into Wampus Brook Park.
Dozens of local and Westchester County-based groups and organizations will participate in this year’s Frosty Parade with floats, lights, dancing, costumes and music. The parade will pass the Historic District in Armonk which was the inspiration for the “Village Square” where Frosty dared the children to “catch me if you can”. Everyone is invited to join Frosty at the end of the procession, which will be followed by the annual holiday lighting ceremony at the gazebo in Wampus Brook Park at 4:30 p.m.
The events and activities will be held for three fun-filled and festive hours that start around town at 12:30 p.m. There wiil be new activities and rides, including more of the popular animated animals and the creation of an ice sculpture in the center of town. Favorites such as the miniature trains and horse-drawn wagons will be back again, along with dancers, singers, marching bands, magicians, clowns, elves, and Santa. Shops and merchants will offer face-painting, frosting cookies, decorating holiday ornaments, refreshments, and making your own Frosty the Snowman to carry in the parade. All activities are free to the public.
