Some people watch others skate and some people take photos of people watching people skate. There is skating in downtown St. Paul at the Landmark Center across the street from Rice Park. There is a warming house and skate rental too.

Ice Sculpture

As part of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival there is an ice carving contest held in Rice Park downtown. They use chainsaws, ice picks, and blow torches to makes some amazing works of art. usually it is too cold when they are being carved and then a thaw the next day so they all melt and then back to the deep freeze.
