UNIVERSITY CITY, MO (KTVI) – The Loop Ice Carnival is held every year in mid-January. It kicks off with the Snow Ball Friday. Ice carver David Vancamp brought one of the fun things for kids of all ages – ice putt putt. Tim Ezell tried his luck. Fore!
After the Frozen Buns Runs Saturday, the Ice Carnival heats up with dozens of events and activities throughout the day. For kids, there are game booths all along the street. There are also ice slides next to Blueberry Hill and ice carving demonstrations in Fitz’s parking lot.
