Go Winter! Expo

jump start

This weekend–even if it doesn’t at all look like winter–visit the Carlson Center Saturday and Sunday to inform yourself about all things winter.  If snow machines aren’t your style, you will find vendors who will educate you on the latest and greatest heating systems, or activities to occupy those dark winter days ahead.  As advertised, this is a great place to get a “jump start” on winter!  Hours are 10-6 on Saturday and 11-5 on Sunday.

 

Christmas in Ice

Ice sculpture

Ice art

Throughout December you can make the easy drive south (yes!) to North Pole, Alaska (101 Saint Nicholas Drive to be exact) and view the ice sculpture, ride down the long ice slide, and get a taste of true northern art form:  small and large ice blocks carved into beautiful creations.  The park is open daily, 11 am to 10 pm.
