ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – The St. Paul Winter Carnival is still more than a month away, but officials held an event Saturday morning to unveil the new buttons for the 2014 event.

The carnival is one of the most popular winter attractions in the city, bringing in families for a variety of fun activities. Saturday’s unveiling took place at Dixie’s on Grand in St. Paul.

The buttons were designed by Chad Peterson, a local artist and long-time competitor in the Ice Sculpture Carving Contest. The buttons feature members of the Winter Carnival royal family, including King Boreas, Aurora Queen of the Snows, Vulcanus Rex and Klondike Kate.

The buttons are for sale at Super America gas stations, the St. Paul Winter Carnival website and other retail locations. The cost is $5 for one or $19 for the set of four.

The 128th St. Paul Winter Carnival will go from Jan. 23 to Feb. 2, 2014, with a majority of the events in downtown St. Paul. It’s called the “Coolest Celebration on Earth” and is run by the St. Paul Heritage and Festival Foundation.
