Winter Carnival gets warm reception
The St. Paul Winter Carnival started this weekend and the Pioneer Press chose to make it a big story. This event is covered in more of a feature or soft news manner because 1) it is on-going and 2) it is annual. The P. Press lede follows suit by focusing on the individual story of a team of snow sculptors and thier Winter Carnival experience. The lede does not reveal much about the story. It makes no mention of the what, the why or the how. The lede does give a who and a when but both of these are very personal and specific references, since it is a feature piece.
