Frosty's Fest And More!

Frosty's Fest is back!!!!  Frosty's Fest immediately follows the Parma Christmas Parade on December 5, 2021. The parade begins at 1:00 PM on Ridge Road near Stearns Homestead and will travel north on Ridge and end at the Ridgewood Golf Course on Hollywood Drive.  Frosty's Fest is brought to you by the non-profit We Are Parma Proud, corporate sponsor Little Birdie's Wine Nest, and 20 other sponsors. Santa, of course, is the star of this event. There will be family-friendly activities both indoors and outside.

Ridgewood Golf Clubhouse, an almost 100 year old facility, will be a holiday vision, resplendent with new lighting and decorations. Look for the 20 Snowmen lining the walkway with names of the sponsors to this event. Workers have been very busy in order to provide you with a visual extravagance. Outdoors behind the clubhouse, in the pavilion, you'll find Santa, the star of this event, waiting to greet you after the parade. TAM Photography LLC will be on hand to capture those special moments of Santa with your child. Photos are free. Santa will also have a special gift for your child. Also, outdoors you'll find the Parma Firemen making s'mores for your child (also free of charge). An ice sculptor will be demonstrating his skill in carving for your viewing pleasure. The famed Jimbo's Concessions food truck will also be on hand and will be selling his renowned cheesesteaks.

Inside the clubhouse, stop to see, participate, and buy from Little Birdie's Wine Nest's Ultimate Hot Cocoa Bar and Christmas Cookie Decorating Station. Owner/operator Robin Keenan and staff would love to tell you about the Birdie's Nest Social Sanctuary, which will be  opening in 2022. Also indoors, you'll find goodies for sale from local bakeries, fresh popcorn, and the We Are Parma Proud tees for sale.  (The shirts make great gifts--show your Parma Pride!). There will also be a free kids craft:  a make-and-take home wooden ornament, and face painting.

Holiday music will be provided indoors and out, and there will be costumed characters strolling the grounds. The event ends at 4 PM. Follow We Are Parma Proud's Facebook page for more holiday activities, such as the 12 Days of Recipes and residents sharing their pictures of holiday decorations and displays (both initiatives will start after Frosty's Fest).

We Are Parma Proud is also pleased to announce the creation of the newly created Christmas In The City Facebook Page. Visit, like, and follow for a list of holiday-related activities throughout the city. You can message the page if you have an event you'd like to share. Already listed is information on the Holiday Lighting Contest, Pop Up Christmas Bar & Lights Tour, Pet Photos with Santa Paws, Christmas At The Farm, Santa Story Time, Parma Symphony Orchestra Concert, Christmas in Polish Village, and more.
