The hype is about to be real starting December 30th when thousands of Edmontonians hit up Hawrelak Park to visit the largest ice castle structure the city has ever seen. You'll definitely be walking through a wonderful winter wonderland in the most literal way possible. The ice castles are constructed using only icicles and water and each structure resembles natural formations such as waterfalls, ice caves, and glaciers. When we think of it now, it's like opening the door to your wardrobe and discovering another Arctic world, minus the lion and the witch. For those of you who have Friday the 30th open, we suggest you round up your friends or family and head down to Hawrelak Park. Make sure your phones are fully charged since you're guaranteed to take a lot of pics.
