Entering its 26th year, Frost Frolic is on course to break records with a large number of vendors and spaces. All that is needed is for people to attend.
This event, which has become a staple in the community, will take place on Saturday at the Fairbury Jr./Sr. High School. Diane Schutt, who organized the event, explained that there are many opportunities for people to stock up on great items for the upcoming holiday season.
Currently, there are 73 registered vendors, who have a total of 125 spaces. Schutt noted that this is one of the highest number of registered spaces throughout the history of Frost Frolic.
“We’ve nearly set a new record for spaces,” said Schutt. “We’ve got a wide variety of vendors selling items from jewelry, to purses, to accessories, to food items. You name it, we have it!”
People will also be able to catch a great meal as volunteers will be working in the cafeteria throughout the day serving various food items. The proceeds raised from the entry fees and the concession stand will go to help the Bonham Theatre Project as they continue to work on re-opening the historic theater in downtown Fairbury.
Schutt explained that people have a special opportunity with Fairbury News Now where if people display the coupon located on Fairbury News Now’s website at the door, they will be able to get in for a discounted price. People are able to access the website on their phones, and are not required to print off the coupon.
“If you bring a friend and show the coupon, you can get in for $2, instead of paying $2 for just yourself,” Schutt said. “It’s like a two for one deal. We’re really excited for this year. It’s number 26, and it all goes to support the Bonham Theatre. Make sure you show up to Frost Frolic!”
