ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — It’s a Minnesota tradition and it’s designed for just the kind of weather we’re experiencing this week.

The St. Paul Winter Carnival starts Thursday with several events going on at Rice Park in downtown St. Paul. It’s labeled the “Coolest Celebration on Earth” and it’s certainly living up to that this week with subzero temperatures and dangerously cold wind chills.

Edward Moody as at Rice Park Thursday morning previewing the event with the crew from the St. Paul Winter Carnival. Officials said you’ll want to bundle up if you plan on being out there today, but it’s just the start of several fun events.

One of the featured event for opening day is the start of the ice sculpture competition. There’s also a parade, and Klondike Kate will be out spreading the carnival cheer. The St. Paul Winter Carnival goes through Feb. 2.
