Save the Date: Dec 1 for the Annual Parade
December 1 is the 10th Anniversary of Frosty Day! This year to celebrate there will be 40 different activities downtown starting at noon including three ride-on trains, automated Arctic animal rides, the Bubble Bus, six bands and of course everyone’s favorite Frosty the Snowman plus Santa. A parade with decorated vehicles, costumed characters and marching bands kicks off at 4:00 pm culminating with a lighting ceremony at Wampus Park at 4:30 pm. The parade is organized by Friends of Frosty, Inc., a non-profit organization in charge of planning one of the most anticipated days for family fun in Armonk.
New this year is a set of illustrations by Corinne Malvern for Frosty the Snowman, consisting of 27 illustrations plus the illustrated title page for the Golden Book edition of that beloved story from 1950/1951. The book was issued to follow up to the huge Gene Autry hit Christmas song of the same title in December 1950. The illustrations are all in color and are in excellent condition and will be displayed in the windows of Framings on Main Street in Armonk.
A display at the North Castle Public Library titled “Armonk 1950’s & Frosty the Snowman” from November 10th through December 14th will have Frosty memorabilia, artifacts and pictures of Armonk life in the 1950’s.
