Saint Paul Winter Carnival – St. Paul, Mn – Jan. 25 – Feb. 10, 2018

For all those Frozen mega-fans out there, this Winter Carnival is a dream come true. They’ll get to sit on an ice throne, wander a mini ice palace, and learn the legend of the King of the Winds—straight out of a fairy tale! Rice Park is home to the famous ice palaces, and Snow Park at the Fair is filled with snow sculptures, giant snow slides and treasure hunts.

Travel Tip: There’s a warming tent to keep tiny toes toasty during the sledding hours at Snow Park.
