One of the most beautiful winter attractions in Eagle River each year is the Ice Castle. It is created in January by local firefighters and volunteers. They cut 12 inch thick ice blocks from a local lake and haul them downtown and in just a couple days, they assemble a structure that is more than 20 feet tall and illuminate it with lights. Every year the design is different from the past.
The Ice Castle has been built almost every year for the past 80. It is on schedule to be built again this winter, weather permitting, so make a trip to Eagle River, Wis. this winter by car or snowmobile. Make sure to pack your camera and make a stop to see this breath taking sight.
