St. Paul Winter Carnival parade, ice sculptures in focus

Even though the weather isn’t as “seasonal” as most years, the St. Paul Winter Carnival is in full swing.

The annual carnival, which began in 1886, bills itself as the “nation’s oldest and largest winter festival.” This year’s activities run through Sunday, and you can check out the event schedule here.

This week’s View Finder focuses on last Saturday’s Grande Day Parade in downtown and the elaborate ice sculptures that brightened Rice Park — until this week’s warm weather took its toll.
