The Winter Carnival is back for 2014, beginning on January 23 and running until February 2.
Many of the classic events return - snow sculptures, ice carving, snow plowing competitions, the medallion hunt, family day at Rice Park, Moonglow and Torchlight parades and the overthrow of King Boreas (followed by fireworks!).
And, new favorites are back, such as the disc golf competition at Como Park and the Winter Beer Dabbler beer festival.
And new for 2014: a giant snow slide at the Minnesota Fairgrounds, join in the world's biggest snowball fight, and wrap up warm to watch an outdoor baseball game at St. Paul Saint's Midway stadium.
