SURPRISE FEATURES

Frosty Day is a celebration of the winter children’s song. Legend has it the song takes place in Armonk, as Steve Nelson, the song’s lyricist, was a frequent visitor to Armonk from his home in nearby White Plains. In 1950, he wrote the song’s lyrics; it was the same year that he was looking for land in Armonk on which to build his new home. Now every year a parade goes down Main Street past the “Village Square” mentioned in the song. It ends with a holiday lighting ceremony.
