The Winter Carnival is different every year. If you are expecting a large ice castle, you may be disappointed. Plan on going and enjoying whatever is present. The amount and depth of ice sculptures changed from Saturday morning to Sunday morning, and Saturday night with the lights gave yet another dimension to the sculptures. This was punctuated
We stopped by here to see what the Winter Carnival was all about. While the park isn't very big, there was a lot to see. Worth checking out!
You can connect the park to a walk in the downtown Saint Paul skyway at either end of the park. Try the connection at the Excel Energy Center and walk down the tunnel to the library, making the trip worth while.
Rice Park has a beautiful tree all lit up at Christmas time, and all of the other trees are lit as well. It's just a magical place around Christmas, and is surrounded by the Ordway, James J Hill Library, St Paul Hotel and Landmark Center.

There isn't too much to say about this park. It has some great views of amazing architecture. It's right downtown with plenty of nearby food options. The weekends consistently have events happening.
