Salem Snowmen

After the first substantial snowfall (2 inches or more) in February come out and build a snowman at Salem! Snowmen can be made any where on the property. First come First Built! Decorations are encouraged. Decorations must be retrieved as your snowman melts. Label your snowman so we know who built it. Don't want to build, take a drive around the property and look at the snowmen others built.
