WINNIPEG — As winter weather starts to come to an end in the next weeks, so does Ice Castles at The Forks.

The popular icy attraction put on by the Utah-based company opened January 5 and has seen tens of thousands of Winnipeggers come through its gates since then.

“It’s been an honour to bring Ice Castles to Winnipeg this season,” said Ice Castles CEO Ryan Davis. “Winnipeg has a vibrant atmosphere and an exceptional community that truly embraces winter.”


The exact closing date is weather dependent, but organizers say most Ice Castles locations typically close in early March. The company also runs their creations in five other North American cities.

The castles were made up of hundreds of thousands of hand-placed icicles harvested from the nearby Red River. Should the weather decide to cooperate in early March, additional days will be open to the public.
