What Stands 16 Feet Tall And Has Eyes Made Out Of Coal? Faribo Frosty
Who stands 16 feet tall and wears a top hat and scarf? Faribo Frosty! Just in time for Christmas, the larger-than-life snowman has returned to Faribault for a special moment with the kids, or for you to enjoy as you drive through town looking at all the Christmas lights.
The post by Hoisington Painting indicated that this year's frosty won't break any height records, but seeing the traditional giant snowman is certainly a needed staple this holiday season.
Over the years the Faribo Frosty has been used to raise awareness and spread joy. Last year when it was built it seemed like there were more people out snapping pictures with the snowman, maybe because of what most of the year was like in relative isolation for many.
Andy and Debbie Hoisington are the ones who create the monster snowman each year, since 2005 when they began making Faribo Frosty, however, that year Frosty wasn't as grand as Frosty has been since then.
Frosty is made from snow, and when there isn't enough snow to create the monster snowman, ice shavings from the Faribault ice rink are used to create and keep Frosty round and 'full'.
If you are looking to stop by and create a Faribo Frosty moment, you can stop by the corner of 1st St NW & 3rd Ave NW and snap a pic or selfie with Frosty.
