A new icy attraction is coming to the city to help Winnipeggers remember just how cool it is to live here during winter.

Ice Castles will be built on Parks Canada land at The Forks just south of the Esplanade Riel bridge adjacent to the Red River.

It is the first year Winnipeg will host the interactive castles, which have been built in several cities across North America.

Artists will spend several weeks crafting the structures, harvesting tens of thousands of icicles before shaping the ice formations into works of art. Some will spiral up to 40 feet high, while being backlit by colourful LEDs and set to a musical soundtrack at night.

Construction on the acre sized site is underway. The castles are expected to open in late December.

Taken on a very chilly Christmas Eve morning with the temperature at the time being -23C but the light was something else and not to be missed.

hat is bitterly cold Jan, I have been seeing temperatures in other parts of Canada and Great Lakes Communities of America and some of them have been horrendous. A truly beautiful photo.
