When Frostburg is mentioned, most people associate our town with chilly winter months, but what they don’t know is how beautiful and vibrant it is in the summertime! We’re closer to the sun, which means we’re closer to the fun, and you can be too! Take advantage of the warmer weather this season, and enjoy all that our mountain town has to offer. The summer sales of this weekend are part of our 2nd Saturday series, where we offer Frostburg residents the chance to support local businesses, and have fun while they’re at it!
