SIOUX FALLS, SD (KELO-AM) The 2014 Frosty Frolics events had record turnouts, despite somewhat unfavorable weather conditions.

The kickoff event was held on Friday, January 3, 2014, in Falls Park with nearly 350 people in attendance for the fireworks show. More than 190 people listened to tunes from the Goodroad Band in the Overlook Café and more than 775 tubing passes were sold at Great Bear Recreation Park.

On Saturday, January 4, 2014, the day started with more than 90 participants in the Frosty Frolics Fun Run at Spencer Park. Then, more than 50 people hit the ice at Family Park for the Fishing Derby, along with 137 snowshoers making tracks at the Mary Jo Wegner Arboretum. Memorial Park ice rink entertained 66 people who tried their hand at curling.

“Unfortunately on Sunday, our fun was cut short and we had to cancel all events due to frigid windchill temperatures. Otherwise, we were on pace to set additional records for the remaining events,” stated Alicia Luther, Recreation Manager.
