Denson and Young - Minneapolis Winter Carnival Opening Ceremony - ON ICE!
Long ago King Boreas, lord of the four winds, stumbled on a charming little town in Minnesota. The street layout made no sense and almost everything shut down at 8PM. Their downtown was a barren wasteland, devoid of any activity which was probably a blessing because if more than 12 people were there it was almost impossible to find parking.
Boreas took pity upon the little hamlet, with it's statues of Snoopy and pathetic attempt to make LaCrosse look like a professional sport people care about. "I shall make a carnival in Old Saint Paul!" Boreas exclaimed. "There will be ice carvings and a parade and buttons. People like buttons, right?"
Year after year Saint Paul was temporarily revitalized by Boreas' generosity. The streets were filled with dozens of people as they frolicked in a winter wonderland and all was good.
Eventually, though, Boreas grew bored at the late hour of 8 PM when everybody would go to sleep. He wandered up to St. Paul's highest hill and cried "Isn't there anything to do around here?!?" He then looked to the west for the first time and saw a bustling metropolis filled with skycrapers, lights and activity. He crossed the river into Minneapolis and declared "THIS! This shall be the site of my new Winter Carnival! The Minneapolis Winter Carnival!"
