Hockey Day is right around the corner and all of Minnesota will be celebrating with high school hockey games outside. But if you can't wait for Hockey Day, check out Shawn Carlon's backyard rink in Maple Grove.

His creation is loaded with colorful LED lights he placed between two layers of ice. Carlon has a flooring business so he's no stranger to beautiful layouts, but he told WCCO that it was his wife's idea to put in the lights. Check it out in the video below.
