It was a very warm start for the Saint Paul Winter Carnival as the Ice Carving competition started this evening in Rice Park.
While the temps near 40 during the overnight were great for people coming out to watch the competitors setting up and carving the giant ice blocks, the temps were not good for the ice.
Several of the ice carvings that were already completed around the park had already began to melt.
