No sense in letting Disney have all fun with frozen royalty – Edmonton has its very own ice castle.

That’s right. The frozen wonderland that is Edmonton’s William Hawrelak Park is now home to massive ice sculpture, complete with icicle ceilings and frozen thrones.

The castle is part of a larger project by Ice Castles, an entertainment company based in Utah. It has five different ice castles across North America – although Edmonton’s creation is the only one in Canada.

The castle will remain open until the weather warms up. And thanks to our Alberta weather, that means it’s likely going to be open to visitors – and Instagram – for a long time.

Can’t complain it’s cold when water can still run out of a fountain! It only feels like -30 degrees Celsius.
