Vulcan Snow Park

Vulcan Snow Park
Minnesota State Fairgrounds
Open daily from 9am-9pm
January 25 through February 2, 2020
Vulcan Fun Day: Sunday, January 26, 2020 • 9am – 3pm

No matter that for years my kids were freaked out by the Vulcan Krewe’s fire truck and refused to ride it. We went to the Vulcan Snow Park at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds anyway and they had a great time avoiding the truck. There was plenty more to do in the snow than ride around in it:

Vulcan Snow Park Activities include

  • Snow Stomp
  • Giant Snow Slide
  • Vulcan Fun Day
  • Barstool Ski Races
  • Kids Quarter-Scale Car Races
  • Tow Up Throw Down Shred Series
  • Vulcan Snow Park Polar Plunge

and dozens of awesome entries in the Minnesota State Snow Sculpting Competition to check out. This outing was a couple years back; the Snow Park will once again liven up the State Fairgrounds during the St. Paul Winter Carnival. I would encourage anyone whose kids would enjoy a good old-fashioned day in the snow to give it a try (Vulcan fire truck rides totally optional).
