SPICER - Blocks of ice from Green Lake were cut Friday for the ice castle for Spicer Winterfest.

Members of Wee Kut Ice Co. and volunteers need to harvest more than 600 ice blocks to build the castle. The blocks are just under 16 inches thick.

The crew projects the castle will be built by Sunday on Saulsbury Beach.

Winterfest 2019 festivities get underway in earnest next weekend.
