Wisconsin ‘ice castle’ now on display

From things dropping down, to something big going up, this ice castle in Eagle River, Wisconsin is a tradition dating back more than 80 years.

Each year, firefighters and other volunteers help build the castle, and people come from all over to see it.

It takes more than 4,000 blocks of ice from a local lake to build the structure.

And lights are installed inside to illuminate it at night.

Officials say with cooler weather, the castle should not melt until March.
