Have Fun Storming the Castle

Wide shot of the ice castle exit

Last Sunday we experienced a mid-winter heatwave with high temps of nearly 50 degrees. Today, just a few days later, we were back down to -3. Minnesota is all about those wild swings. But during the brief warmup, I was able to drag my young adult out to see the Ice Castles in New Brighton. We visited early afternoon. I found it impressive in daylight but would like to see it when it’s all lit up at night too. The blurb from their website:

Ice Castles is an award-winning frozen attraction located in five cities across North America. The experience is built using hundreds of thousands of icicles hand-placed by professional ice artists. The castles include breathtaking LED-lit sculptures, frozen thrones, ice-carved tunnels, slides, fountains and much more.
