LSSU – Snowman Burning


Spring officially begins at 5:58 PM on Wednesday, March 20th! To welcome Spring, Lake Superior State University is holding its annual Snowman Burning. It begins at Noon at LSSU, on the South Side of the Walker Cisler Center.

This tradition of snowman burning started back in 1971 and has been going ever since. The event is open to the public with free food, beverages and poetry. This years poems have a twist being spring-themed haiku’s. Free Daffodils will be given out to the first 200 attending.

Chief Meteorologist Tom O’Hare will be lucky one to light the snowman ablaze! The latest forecast is one to truly usher in Spring!

And the celebration doesn’t end after the snowman burning. It continues at 6:00 pm with an after-burner-party, complete with a mini snowman burning, s’mores, a hot cocoa bar and specials for Lakers.

Tom hopes to see you there.
