Ice Palaces of the St. Paul Winter Carnival


with Bob Olsen

Calendar Dec 12, 2019 at 1 pm

Bob Olsen has been enamored with ice palaces since he was ten year’s old.  By the time Olsen finished high school he helped build three snow palaces, and re-catalogued hundreds of historical ice palace photographs earning him the title of the “official unofficial historian of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival Ice Palaces.”  In 1975, Olsen built an ice palace for the Winter Carnival.  Ice palace research has consumed Olsen all his adult life.  Bob continues to be the Carnival’s historical consultant for ice palaces, helping extensively with the 1976, 1986, 1992, 2004, and the 2018 ice structures.  Refreshments will be served.

Fee: $6

Registration required by December 10; limited to 40 people.
