Sunday afternoon had everything anyone needed for outdoor fun. The temperature was reasonable, the sliding hill at the St. Paul Park City Hall had packed, icy snow and new snow was coming down to make the hill even faster for the city's annual sledding party. The hot cocoa and cookies served up in the fire department, along with tours of the fire hall, were added treats.
