Massive ice castle under construction in New York

A giant castle made of ice blocks is being built for the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival in upstate New York in the US. Report by Jeremy Barnes.

The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival began as an integral part of Saranac Lake’s history as a renowned health resort. In order to break winter’s chill and to promote outdoor sports and games, the Pontiac Club was formed in November 1896, and a few months later, they sponsored a one-day fancy dress winter carnival in 1897, which was expanded into the Pontiac Club Carnival in 1898.
