It actually might be colder than your average freezer. Every year, around this time, Saint Paul decides to take advantage of the temperatures and throw a winter carnival. What does that mean? Ice sculptures. An entire square block downtown dedicated to ice sculptures. Here we have a few of my favorites, a Mr. Potato Head, a tropical scene, the Cheshire Cat, a Southwest Airlines advert (no shame), and of course, The Last Supper. Take a look.
I've heard that there's usually an ice castle you can actually walk through, but evidently that tradition is no more. It's amazing to me that they can do this! These will probably be up through May.
P.S. If you still haven't watched the video below, you really should. It's not really one of those boring informational videos. You'll see.
