With the latest round of subzero temperatures in Minnesota — along with New Year’s promise of at least a few more long months of winter weather — there is at least one piece of good news. Some ice skating rinks in Minneapolis are set to open this week.
A winter tradition is making a comeback after more than a decade! Organizers of this year’s St. Paul Winter Carnival say they will be bringing back the Royal Courtyard in Rice Park, according to the Pioneer Press.
A winter wonderland will soon be open to the public. Two years ago, Brent Christensen built an ice castle outside of Mall of America. This year it’s back, but at Miller Park in Eden Prairie.

For the first time since 2004, an ice castle could be coming to the Twin Cities this winter. But not where you think. The Mall of America plans to partner with a Utah-based ice sculpting business to bring a winter wonderland to Bloomington in December.
