This weekend, February 18 – February 20, come to Mayville, NY for a fun filled Winter Festival for all ages! The festival is on, no matter the weather, so come enjoy all of the great activities that have been planned!
The main attraction is always the Ice Castle, which is built by many volunteers who cut blocks of ice out of the lake and spend many hours constructing their masterpiece. Eventhough we’ve been experiencing some warmer temperatures, they are already taking precautions to protect the ice castle. Today, the volunteers are focusing on protecting the castle with plastic, in case of rain. View a video of the volunteers building the castle HERE provided by the President’s Day Weekend Winter Festival Facebook page and WICU12 Erie.
