Snowman Brings Smiles, Feeds Families This Holiday Season 

A winter display at Hollywood Slots Hotel and Raceway in Bangor is bringing smiles and feeding families this season.You’ll find an 11-foot tall snowman in the lobby of the hotel.The snowman, his friend and trees were all made out of canned goods.Over 1,900 pounds of canned goods make up the display.They’ll be delivered to United Way.Artist Allison Melton created the scene and says she wanted it to represent the spirit of the holidays.”This year I decided to do a Snowman because I was trying to think of something that was holiday related but also really brought upon this feeling of nostalgia and community. When you drive down the street you see a snowman and it really makes you think of your own childhood, family, loved ones which is what it’s all about this holiday season,” she said.Hollywood Slots will continue to collect non-perisable food items for United Way until the end of January. If you’d like to help them out, you can drop them off at the hotel.
