WHAT IS THE FROSTY FEST?

The Frosty Fest is a chance for you and your family or business to show off your holiday pride for all to see! With your donation you will receive an unprinted snowman-shaped lawn sign for you to paint and decorate as you’d like. Be creative. Be fun. Size is approx. 18”x 32”

After you’re done creating your masterpiece, MPC will place your creation on the Green for the whole community to enjoy!

Once the Fest is over – you are welcome to take home your snowperson to enjoy on your lawn all winter long!

This fundraiser is open to families, Milford-based businesses, organizations and clubs while supplies last.  Proceeds will benefit Milford Prevention Council and substance use prevention and mental health awareness programming for our local youth.

Please note: NO REFUNDS on purchases

WHEN IS THE FROSTY FEST?

Snowpeople will be displayed from December 5 – first week in January for all to enjoy!

Sales will run from Wednesday, November 10th through Monday, December 20th at 3pm with placements being made throughout the month.

SPECIAL SALES! If you would like to create a sign at home and not place it on the green, sales will be running through end of month – we will contact you for custom pick ups! This is a great craft activity for the kids/grandkids that you can place in your yard for the winter!

DO NOT PLACE YOUR SNOWMAN ON THE GREEN, IT MUST BE DONE BY MPC.

All participants will be mentioned on our social media outlets as well as posted on the Milford Prevention Council website.

WHY GET INVOLVED?

Decorating your Snowperson is a fun, creative project you can share with your family.  Heat up some cocoa, put on Holiday Music, get your weather-proof paints and lightweight craft supplies out and get to work!  It’s also a great way for businesses to customize their “snowman” design to reflect their services/products.

Take a drive down Broad or walk the Green with your family and take in the spirit of the holidays in Milford throughout December.

Show off your craftiness and community cheer while helping raise funds for Milford Prevention Council’s programs and mission.
