The Frosty Parade in Armonk

Last weekend, The Bristal at Armonk’s Director of Community Relations, Nancy Campagna, joined Regional Director of Business Development Janine Valentiner at the annual Frosty Parade in Armonk! Everyone was bundled up and the streets were lined with folks ready to catch a glimpse of Frosty the Snowman. Frosty then lead the parade-goers to Wampus Brook Park where everyone got to see the holiday lighting ceremony.

Nancy and Janine handed out Frosty the Snowman pencils to the local shops as well as the children watching the parade. The Bristal is glad to be joining the community of Armonk. Here are a few shots from the event:

According to the Armonk Frosty website:
“Located in the Town of North Castle, Armonk’s Historic District is the “Village Square” in the song’s lyrics where Frosty dared the children to “catch me if you can.”

The lyricist of the winter holiday classic, Steve Nelson, was a frequent visitor to Armonk after World War II from his home in nearby White Plains, NY.  In 1950, he wrote the song’s lyrics which he put to Jack Rollins’ music; it was the same year that he was looking for land in Armonk on which to build his new home.  Gene Autry recorded the song that year, making it an instant classic, following his earlier one of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.””
