They didn’t wait for snow to bring Frosty to life along Interstate 40

Each day, more than 80,000 vehicles driving through New Mexico’s biggest city are greeted by the unique expression of holiday cheer that is a lot more southwest than North Pole. The 14-foot snowman, built every year for the last two decades by the Albuquerque Metropolitan Arroyo Flood Control Authority, looms above the busy road, a familiar site to locals and a curiosity to visitors.

“The tumbleweed snowman is a fun way to celebrate the holidays,” said Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry. “It is a great reminder to folks that Albuquerque enjoys a high desert climate that also gets enough snow to build a snowman at times.”
