Loop Ice Carnival 

When: Sat., Jan. 16, 11 a.m. 2016
Price: free admission, some activities require a fee
It's been an interesting "winter" so far. We had T-shirt weather on Christmas day and long stretches of the warm/cool mambo. The most dangerous precipitation has been rain (and lots of it). Will this year's Loop Ice Carnival ice sculptures even make it to the end of the day? Mmmaybe? Colder weather is predicted, so here's hoping the annual celebration of all things icy stays icy. The Delmar Loop (Delmar Boulevard and Skinker Avenue; will be chock-a-block with ice slides, a music igloo and snowboarders starting at 11 a.m. The ever-popular human dog sled races (in which teams of people pull wheeled sleds down Delmar) returns, as does frozen turkey bowling. New this year is the 350-foot-long Zip Flyte zipline ($10 per ride) and the Ice Breaker game, a twist on the old carnival test-of-strength; in this one, you get two swings with a sledgehammer to crack a block of ice. Most events are free, but some do require a fee.
