The Ice Castles open soon! (so at least that cold spell was good for something)

The ice castles moved to Stillwater this year.

A popular winter attraction will be opening soon. The Ice Castles announced Friday they will be opening on Jan. 6 – weather permitting.

When you're looking for the castles, don't head to Eden Prairie where they've been in the past. The attraction moved to Stillwater this year.

Tickets will go on sale Friday evening. You can get them here.

Last year, the Ice Castles' season was cut short by warm weather. They didn't open until the end of January and had to close a few weeks later.

This winter is supposed to colder though, so hopefully that doesn't happen again. They might have to survive this weekend's round of rain though.
