Santa Claus & Snowman
Inkster, MI
Frosty's Fun Center
Santa Claus, IN
Snowman
Christmas, MI
This Santa Claus & Snowman are installed at the Inkster Fire Department during the holiday season. These photos are from 2008. I don't believe the statues were displayed in 2009. However, there is a photo on-line from 2011 showing them. Does anyone know if they are still displayed? [photos thanks Mark Comstock]

Frosty's Fun Center is located on the Santa's Lodge property. It has a mini golf course with this nine foot tall snowman which doubles as a fountain. [map]

This Snowman statue in Christmas is located at Santa's Workshop and Gift Shop. He was built in the 1960s. There are also giant Santa and Mrs. Claus signs here. [map]

Snowman
North St. Paul, MN
This Snowman was built in 1974 and is made of concrete stucco. He is 44 feet tall and was moved in 1990 from a different location in town. The statue was a permanent solution to the building of a snowman each winter for North St. Paul's Sno-Daze. For more, see this website. [map]

Snowman
2012:
West Chester, OH
2013:
Portersville, PA
This Snowman was located at The Cone, a former Twistee Treat ice cream stand when these photos were taken in 2012. The Snowman is just over 13 feet tall. It was previously located in Horn Lake, MS and also operated in Memphis, TN. The Snowman was moved to West Chester, OH in 2009 where he was stored with some other mobile Twirlees units. In 2013, the Snowman was moved to Portersville, PA where he is used as a shaved ice and smoothie stand. For more, see this website. [Porterville photo thanks to the owner]

Apparently, there is or was another Snowman like this which was located in Amarillo, TX in 2007 and 2008. The owners had bought the statue around 2005 from someone in Clovis, NM. The Snowman never operated in Amarillo and the owners sold it around 2008. It is not known where it went after that. The hat on this Snowman is different with the tassel on the opposite side. The figure might lean a little bit more forward as well.

Yeti
Ranchita, CA
This Yeti statue is located next to the Ranchita Market. It is also known as the Abominable Snowman or Bigfoot. The statue is 11 feet tall and was built around 2007 by Joe Rauh. The panel door at the back of the statue may contain a sound box. However, there were no sounds coming from the statue when I was there. The statue is dressed in an Uncle Sam hat for the 4th of July and a Santa hat for the Christmas holidays. For more, see this website. [map]
