Visitor Tips and News About World's Largest Stucco Snowman
The construction on highway 36 is done, but a new bridge of obscures much of the snowman from the road.[Aaron, 03/24/2014]
Actually really odd to see the World's Largest Stucco Snowman in the summer, when it's 100 degrees outside. Fun. And odd.[Troy Ziesmer, 11/12/2010]
Hwy 36 will be closed from May 1st until (?). Major road construction. Don't worry, they are not moving the Snowman![Jean, 04/28/2007]
The World's Largest Stucco Snowman sits at the southeast corner of MN highway 36 and Margaret St. in North St. Paul. The North St. Paul Jaycees used to build a snowman each winter to celebrate Sno-Daze. They were built on the northeast corner of the same intersection. Apparently after a couple of lean snowfall winters they decided to build a permanent icon for the city. The "Stucco man" used to sit on the southeast corner of 7th Ave. and Margaret St. (the downtown area). It was later moved to the current site so more people (traveling along highway 36) would be exposed to its awesome splendor.[Terry Sinn, 05/15/1998]
