In the midst of historic downtown St. Paul lies Rice Park, with views of edifices such as the Landmark Center, Ordway Theater, and St. Paul Hotel. It makes sense that a park surrounded by such essential St. Paul sights would also be the site for many of the events that the annual St. Paul Winter Carnival has to offer.

At night the sculptures are lit, filling the park with sparkling, glimmering lights.
