I missed the Luck Winter Carnival last weekend due to my stomach bug, but after last night's basketball game I stopped by the ice palace and snapped a couple of photos.
I'm kind of glad they didn't have the colored lights shining on the ice, I like this natural look best.
I'm not sure how long the palace will last since the temperatures warmed up for a few days,
so I'm glad I got to see it.
As a kid, the ice palace was huge, built all the way around a big ice rink, with thrones at the one end.
Then for many years, there was no castle at all.
Now, a hearty group of volunteers works hard to create this feature as part of the
Luck Winter Carnival.
