This weekend's snowfall is a remainder that the 133rd annual St. Paul Winter Carnival is just around the corner.

The annual collectible buttons are now on sale.

The reveal event Saturday at Stacked Deck Brewing featured the St. Paul Winter Carnival Royal Family, Vulcans and Klondike Kates who then headed off around town to Bennett'sChop & Railhouse, Mancini's Char House and Tom Reid's Hockey City Pub to sell them.
