All the snowmen in St Ives are lost!

Got a three-nager to occupy? Why not walk them around St Ives town centre, looking for snowmen? The storyline is all the snowmen in St Ives have been lost, and only your little one/s can find them. The snowmen can be found in most of the shop windows. Equally riveting from age two upwards.

There are several hundred, from large single displays to lots of little ones. Best time for the expedition is after dark, with the streets lit by Christmas decorations. Took us an hour, allowing for lots of 'ooooh's and 'aaaah's.


The snowmen displays are the initiative of St Ives Retail Group and run from November, with a prize awarded for the best effort. Which one is your favourite? Mine is Flower Bar in Bridge Street, shown above. But what caused most excitement (and three visits) for our three-nager was the display opposite in West End Stores, Bridge Street, of... West End Stores in miniature, complete with Christmas lights, river and bridge.
