Cool castles: Ice palaces of the Winter Carnival

The first Winter Carnival ice palace was built in 1886 at Central Park between Cedar and Minnesota streets (now a parking ramp for the State Capitol). It was illuminated at night with electric lights using color globes. It took three weeks and 200 men to build the 106-foot-tall palace.

There's a new icy attraction this year at the Winter Carnival: a royal courtyard. An ice palace could return in 2018.
