When the original movie, Frozen, came out 5+ years ago, my girls quickly became captivated by the amazing storyline of two strong and loving sisters who would go to any length to protect one another. Couple the movie’s positive message with some incredibly catchy music, and soon we were listening to the new soundtrack for all of our lives as our kids sang the Frozen melodies on repeat! Sound familiar, mamas? Fast forward to the present, and the obsession has had a revival with my eldest playing “Elsa” in her school play, just in time for the release of Frozen 2. Apparently, we’re not the only ones who like warm hugs as there are places all over town that have gotten into the hype. Check out our list for the coolest Frozen events near you!
