Frosty's Fest is Back!

Mark your calendars, save the date, Sunday, December 3rd is We Are Parma Proud’s flagship event, Frosty’s Fest. This family friendly extravaganza takes place on the Parma City Hall campus, encompassing the Donna Smallwood Activities Center, parking lots and the Powers Blvd Library, where multiple events will take place. Frosty’s Fest follows the annual Christmas Parade which begins at 1:00 pm. The parade route begins at Stearns Farm travelling north to Parma City Hall. 

Frosty’s Fest begins when Santa, his Sleigh, and his Elves arrive at the Donna Smallwood Activities Center, located at 7001 W. Ridgewood Dr., following the parade. This family focused event has a lot to offer, free admission and it’s is open to the public, no residency is required. As in past years free photos with Santa, kids crafts, activities, lots of extras too. Bakeries will be on hand with their mouth watering holiday goodies for you to purchase. Oh, and don’t forget to stop and shop the We Are Parma Proud merchandise table, offering great items like the official logo shirts, sweatshirts, and more, that show your pride of this great city. (makes great gifts too!) Food and beverages indoors and out. Outside there’s food trucks, free s’mores, and watch a live demonstration of ice sculpting. Ends at 4:00 pm. 

As in past, this event is brought to you through sponsorship by local businesses and non-profits. This event draws thousands of people and is a great way for businesses to give back to the community and promote their name simultaneously. Interested? Email
