Frozen festival

ST. CHARLES, Mo. -- When it's cold outside, you might as well make the best of it. In St. Charles they're taking advantage of the cold to play with ice.

On Saturday, the city near St. Louis will host its 10th annual Fete de Glace, an ice-carving festival. Ice carvers from around the region will battle in three divisions. One is the monster carving competition, where two-person teams combine five blocks of ice into one sculpture.

Admission is free. For more information, call the Greater St. Charles Convention and Visitors Bureau at 636-946-7776 or go to www.historicstcharles.com.
