MAYVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB)A majestic winter tradition is taking shape in the southern tier.
The “ice castle” has been built for the annual Winter Festival in Mayville. The official lighting ceremony will take place on Saturday.
Crews say the extremely cold temperatures have provided perfect conditions for the structure, which in years past has been torn down when higher temperatures caused it to become unstable.
Big crowds are expected at Lakeside Park for the festival this weekend.
