Minnesotans might complain among one another of the frigid winter months, but the same arctic conditions often serve as a source of pride, as exemplified by the Saint Paul Winter Carnival. Centered in Rice Park, the traditional site of the festival’s signature ice palace and surrounding sculptures, the event has grown to encompass much of our capital city. At the State Fairgrounds, revelers can partake in the Beer Dabbler tasting featuring libations from over 120 brewers. For family-friendly activities, the Fairgrounds will also offer competitively judged snow sculptures, sledding hills, and a Polar Plunge into icy waters. Those seeking the thrill of competition can head to Como Park for 28 frozen holes of disc golf at the Gotta Go Gotta Throw Ice Bowl, or sprint through downtown with the Securian Winter Run. While other activities abound, including the technological innovations of the Autonomous Snowplow Competition and the ever adorable Saintly City Cat Show, nothing is as closely associated with the carnival as the three mainstay parades: Moon Glow Pedestrian, King Boreas Grand Day, and Vulcan Victory Torchlight. However one partakes, the Saint Paul Winter Carnival offers ample reasons to forgo the complaints and actually enjoy our prolonged months of ice and snow.
