Driving around Kansas City in late December this year, you’d be hard pressed to spot any snow, let alone a humongous snowman.

Frosty was designed that year by Vernon Jones, the Kansas City Parks Department’s then-supervisor. Each year, Frosty, Santa, toy soldiers and other displays visited the park just south of Gillham Road and 39th Street at Christmas time as part of Santa’s Wonderland.
