Snowmen brought to life in Boonsboro
Lots of homes sure are looking festive.
If you enjoy the holiday displays, don't miss the Flat Frosties adorning the streets in town, brought to you by the Boonsboro Town Council and various merchants and individuals around town.
It's fun to see the creative ways snowmen have been brought to life.
My favorites are the shepherd at the west end of town, and the crazy beautician with the hair dryer powered by Christmas lights.
