Frozen Fun for Everyone at Loop Ice Carnival
The Delmar Loop celebrates its seventh annual ice carnival.
Ice was flying in the Delmar Loop this Saturday for the seventh annual Delmar Loop Ice Carnival. Hundreds of people hit the street to take in ice carving demonstrations, human-dog-sled races, and a whole lot of ice sculptures.
"I liked two things: getting (candy) gold coins from penguins, and taking pictures with ice sculptures," said Grayson Daitch, 10, of Chesterfield.
"They're awesome," said Wendy Henrix, of University City, about the ice sculptures. "(The sculpture of) Bob Marley has been my favorite so far."
Randy Caress, of Market Pub House, said he enjoyed participating in the human-dog-sled games as his team's sled rider. "It was good. I had to hold on for dear life and get bumped into the rail, but other than that it was pretty decent."
The all-day arctic affair also featured a putt-putt pub crawl, a frozen buns run, a temporary tattoo scavenger hunt, game booths, a video game lounge, canvas cooler art, cosmonauts on ice, a music igloo, and an ice block breaking game, and ice slides.
"My daughter liked watching the kids go down the slides, and touching all the ice sculptures," said Justin Klein, of University City.
"I think the carnival is awesome," said first time carnival attendee Tim Stutte, of Maplewood. "There's definitely a lot of ice. It lives up to its name."
