LANSINGBURGH, N.Y. -- Snowman's kicked off their 2013 season Saturday and dozens came out to welcome the opening.
The ice cream shop has been a staple in the community for 60 years and usually opens in early March.
Many in the community say they look forward to snowman's reopening every year because it's a good way to kick those wintry blues.
"Now we're ready to go. I got my lighter jacket on. I feel great. I mean this does a lot for everyone," said Loretta Fredricks, a Lansingburgh resident.
"We already had a good opening so far the sun is shining, the snows going from the parking lot -- I',m happy," said Snowman's owner John murphy.
Murphy says every year around grand opening time there's always been a snowstorm -- and this year wasn't any different.
The shop will be open throughout the spring and summer season.
