Witness the aftermath of a visit from Mr. Freeze at the eighth annual Delmar Loop Ice Carnival on Saturday, January 19, from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. This family-friendly street fest on Delmar Boulevard (5900 to 6700 blocks) includes 5k and 10k frozen buns runs, ice slides, themed ice sculptures in front of businesses, games, ice carving demonstrations, photos with "penguins" and "polar bears," human dog sled races and food and drink options such as s'mores and hot chocolate. Shops along Delmar get in on the fun, too -- comic shop Star Clipper, for example, will feature a Totoro ice sculpture. Adults can indulge in the putt putt pub crawl at participating bars, and stick around in the evening for live music at clubs in the Loop. The carnival is free and open to the public; cash required for food, drink and activities. For more information visit www.visittheloop.com.
