(WJFW) — More than 100 volunteers in Northern Wisconsin have spent the better part of a week building a giant ice castle.

The Eagle River Volunteer Fire Department takes charge of building the ice castle each year.

“The ice castle is so good for Eagle River. We get all the tourism that comes in and it’s a great sense of accomplishment,” said Eagle River Fire Chief Michael Anderson.
