Martin Luther King Day Celebration

Sat., Jan. 19, 10 a.m.

The Fountain Park neighborhood is home to one of the oldest statues of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the metro area. Rev. King is in a dramatic pose, right arm outstretched as he preaches to the world, his church vestments billowing out behind him. Erected in 1978, the statue received much-needed refurbishment in the summer of 2018 and now stands tall and proud once again to welcome the celebrants of this year's Martin Luther King Jr. Day observance. At 10 a.m. Saturday, January 19, community leaders from Centennial Christian Church, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, and community and civic leaders will participate in a peace walk that starts adjacent to the statue at 4950 Fountain Avenue, with the Jennings Warrior Marching Band leading the one-mile march. Following the walk, there will be a panel discussion in the Centennial Christian Church sanctuary on the theme of "Living the Dream: Dismantling Injustices in Community, Education & Literacy." A book-bag-and-school-supply giveaway follows the discussion. Admission is free to all. free admission

Loop Ice Carnival

Sat., Jan. 19, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 20, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

As frequent attendees of the Loop Ice Carnival will attest, the January event has no guarantee of cold weather. While it's sometimes frigid on the days in question, St. Louis weather is fickle; it can be tough to stay in a frosty frame of mind while the ice sculptures are sweating in 60-plus-degree heat. But it's not impossible. Whatever the temperature turns out to be, the ice sculptors and their creations will line both sides of Delmar Boulevard between Kingsland and Rosedale avenues, along with the kid-favorite ice slide, trike races (for kids and parents), a bounce house and the Red Bull Rooftop Skate Park atop the Moonrise Hotel. New this year are a host of after-hours events for adults, including bar games at participating venues. The Loop Ice Carnival takes place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (January 19 to 20; www.visittheloop.com). Admission is free. free admission

Steinberg Skating Rink

Fridays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.-11 p.m. and Mondays-Thursdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Continues through Feb. 25

Ice skating and hot cocoa go together like Christmas and carols. Every year, Steinberg Skating Rink in Forest Park (www.steinbergskatingrink.com) is open from early November to late February, providing the Midwest's largest outdoor rink for the low price of $7 a day. Your $7 is good for the whole day, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Skate rental is another $7, which is a steal — but just because it's so affordable doesn't mean you have to bring the family. If you're tired of the in-laws, their kids or just want to get out of the house, Steinberg is there for you. Nothing clears the head like a brisk skating session and hot cocoa by an outdoor fire. $7

Panoramas of the City

Through March 24

In a year in which the Missouri History Museum exhibition team has given us the stories of St. Louis' greatest civil rights freedom fighters and returned us to the glory days of Route 66, it would take something truly spectacular for the museum to outdo itself — and yet somehow it's done just that. The museum's new exhibition, Panoramas of the City, is as close to time travel as you can get without involving Morlocks. The show comprises seven floor-to-ceiling size images of scenes such as Charles Lindbergh speaking to a crowd of 100,000 people on Art Hill at his "welcome home" party and a 1920 march on Olive Street by the League of Women Voters. These massive photographs are joined by props and interactive media displays that give viewers a better understanding of the historical context of each scene. More than 60 panoramas of various sizes round out the exhibit, which will be on display from September 2 to March 24, 2019, at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; www.mohistory.org). free admission
