Tumbleweed Snowman He’s Back….
The Tumbleweed Snowman has become an annual tradition in Albuquerque. The Tumbleweed Snowman first made his appearance in the 1990’s some say even earlier. One thing for sure is he delights commuters on I-40.
The hefty Tumbleweed Snowman can be found this year on the North side of Interstate 40 and East of the Big I.
The Tumbleweed Snowman is quite easy to spot standing 14 feet tall and made from 3 large tumbleweeds. It took 60 gallons of white paint to turn this otherwise brown tumbleweed into a festive Tumbleweed Snowman. That’s not a carrot for his nose it’s an ax handle that was painted orange and his cap was specially made for him out of metal.
Now you tell me the City of Albuquerque doesn’t have imagination, sense of humor and talent. Thanks to all that make this fun character possible each year!
