Ice Castles are back – and this year they’re in Stillwater! I love the location 10x more than their previous location in Eden Prairie’s Miller Park. Ice Castles are in Lowell Park, by all the downtown businesses and restaurants (i.e. places to WARM UP!!!) and right along the St. Croix river.
I shared in my Twin Cities Kids Club blog post that Stillwater is brilliant for hosting Ice Castles this year. What better way to boost traffic to all their quaint businesses, like Leo’s Grill & Malt Shop (our favorite!), Kids Oasis Indoor Creative Play Space, and Gammy & Gumpy’s Toy Store.
Our visit was great. It was flipping COLD out the night we visited – so we didn’t stay long. But it has all the “cool” features of previous years – the Enchanted Frozen Characters from Tiny Diva Princess Party, the fire performers from Insphyre, goodies from Taste of Love Bakery, and fun features like slides.
The ice princesses were taking a break when we were there, and somehow we missed a new feature – a MAZE – but I put together a bunch of pictures of the many awesome things we did see.
Fire Performers from Insphyre. These guys were fun. They gotta keep moving though to not get burned.
Awesome fire performances. Be sure to check them out on Friday and Saturday nights when they have four performing together. [Read more…]
