WOODVILLE, WI – Hello Village of Woodville! We just got back a week ago from an exciting weekend at the St. Paul Winter Carnival January 24-27.

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year: the 133rd Saint Paul Winter Carnival, the ‘Coolest Celebration on Earth’ since 1886. The Winter Carnival continues to bring family-friendly events and community pride to Saint Paul and the Twin Cities metro area.”

 We had tons of fun meeting new courts, getting to do lots of fun activities, meeting the new St. Paul Winter Carnival Court and the new Vulcans.

While we were at the Winter Carnival we did a bunch of things. We marched in the St. Paul Winter Carnival Grand Parade, we painted some beautiful pictures, we visited the Minnesota History Center and learned loads of new information about mining and animal furs. We also visited Kellogg Park and saw some beautiful ice sculptures. We also had the opportunity to be knighted by the new St. Paul Winter Carnival Court.

We would like to say thank you to the Woodville Lions Club for giving us the opportunity to go to the 133rd St. Paul Winter Carnival. Overall, we had a great time at the St. Paul Winter Carnival and are so grateful to have gone.

Your Syttende Mai Court: Queen - Amber DeLong, 1st Princess Libby Whirry, and 2nd Princess Abbie DeLong.
