This year the Saint Paul, MN Winter Carnival runs January 22-February 1st. During these dates are events that attract approximately 350,000 visitors a year to the city. The events include a Grande Day parade, ice carving, snow sculpting, a treasure hunt, a hockey tournament and many, many other fun activities. Some years they even build an ice palace. Through the years I have enjoyed many outdoor events during the Winter Carnival. If you're not doing anything today be sure to check out one of the activities!
