When the weather is cold, people love to visit Saint Paul, Minnesota. The city has a giant winter festival. The festival has been taking place each year for more than 100 years. Everyone is invited to join the fun.

There are ice sculptures.

Artists carve animals and other creatures out of ice. This is an eagle. It has a dream catcher.

Here is a baby Paul Bunyan. There are many tall tales about the lumberjack.

There is a big slide.

The slide is made of snow. Riders sail down the slide. Whee!

There is a wall of ice.

Big blocks of ice are stacked up. Some blocks have photos on them. They are pictures from past festivals.

The city is filled with lights.

Some of the events take place at night. The trees glow with bright lights. There 
are parties and concerts.

Think!
