A 90-Foot Tall Snowman Spotted in Santa Monica

“If there’s a bit of magic in the air, and Christmas is close, and the wizards who operate the 174,000 LED lights of the Pacific Wheel on Santa Monica Pier have the Noël-inspired notion, a snowman can materialize on an attraction associated with the sun. Make that a super-sized snowman, one that stands at some nine stories high, which equals about 90 feet or so.”
