The annual homecoming of America’s favorite snowman,
Frosty, will be held in his hometown of Armonk. The Frosty Day fun-filled family
activities will start in downtown Armonk at 12:30 p.m. with the annual Frosty
Parade scheduled for 4 p.m. The parade will be followed by the annual holiday
lighting ceremony at the gazebo in Wampus Brook Park.
The Frosty Parade is the only holiday-themed parade in the area and all activities
are free to the public. Almost every business, shop and merchant in Armonk is
involved somehow in Frosty Day; there are individual corporate sponsorships available
for events and activities during the day and the parade.
There will be new activities and rides this year, 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, Santa and of course, Frosty. 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. A list of the times and places of events and activities are available on the Frosty website: armonkfrosty.com.
Events and activities will be held for three hours around town before the parade which will travel north on Main Street to Maple Avenue and then into Wampus Brook Park. Everyone is part of the parade, joining in at the end to help welcome Frosty home for the holidays.
