The year is 1886. Saint Paul, Minnesota has hosted a Winter Carnival since 1885, making it the oldest such carnival in the United States. The city apparently got their inspiration from the winter carnival at Montreal. What’s unusual for an American carnival, is its theme is overtly pagan. The carnival is based on a “legend” of various gods and goddesses who preside over the festival and provide most of its themes. A highlight of the carnival, is the building of an Ice Palace. These palaces are not merely the size of a split-level igloo – but, are massive . . . as in MASSIVE. The palaces’ attention to detail is very impressive. Quite an achievement in ice design and construction. Pictured below is the main entrance into the ice palace of 1886.
