Saint Paul Winter Carnival this weekend


I’m a huge fan of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival, especially the parades and the ice carving (see 2006, 2007, 2008)

This Saturday, be sure to check out the King Boreas Grande Day Parade, which starts at 2 p.m. at East 4th Street at Broadway. The parade then travels down East 4th Street, turns at Washington Avenue at Rice Park and ends at 5th Street & Cedar Avenue.

Bundle up. Dunn Bros has hot chocolate and a restroom, but be prepared to wait in line for both.
