A few years ago the Ice Castles were moved from the Mall of America and established in Eden Prairie, MN.  I think it's cool that people from the Twin Cities visit the Twin Ports to experience Bentleyville Tour of Lights and we can travel down to take in the amazing Ice Castles.  If you enjoy Lake Superior's Ice Caves you'll love this!

What is the Ice Castles?  It is massive and hand crafted of only ice, yup just frozen water that is molded into towers and tunnels, canyons and archways and is lit by thousands of LED lights.  Of course planning for the phenomenon starts months prior to the cold weather that preserves the castles once they get sculpted together. If you think you would like to help with that they are looking for talent people who would like to be part of building the Ice Castles this year.

A couple years ago they moved the  Ice Castles from the Mall of America to Miller Park, at 8208 Eden Prairie Road in Eden Prairie, MN. Mark it on your calendar and start planning your trip now, it will open in January through March (depending on weather).

I thought about a video to give you a peek at what the Ice Castles look like and found one with a holiday flair.  Remember the  A Capella group "Home Free"?  They were just in Duluth on December 1!  Here they are IN the Ice Castles singing "Do You Hear What I Hear?" Enjoy!
