Benefits and Frequently Asked Questions
Where Will Snowmen be located?
They will be placed within the Borough of Stroudsburg for you to explore and find.
Some towns depict animals, vintage cars, fairy tales and even birds. GO Collaborative studied what the area is known for, canoeing, hiking, fishing, camping, artists, off road adventures, swimming, sports and Snow! We agreed that this attraction should not offend children or make people feel uneasy. We are the only town that to date is featuring Snowmen. Who doesn’t like a snowmen? Snowmen are exciting to adults and children alike bringing fond memories of childlike play.
What ARE THEY made of?
To start we have constructed a three dimensional “iron” armature to fit structurally within the snowmen. The Snowmen spheres are made of EPSF = expanding polystyrene foam (this is totally recyclable) they are then coated with a recyclable rubber similar to Tuff Hyde. They are then painted by artists with water based paints and then coated with a soluble Anti-Graffiti paint. Our snowmen will not hurt our environment!
