I am convinced that everything Harry Potter fans can do to keep Harry Potter alive and display their passion for it… they will do. I ain’t complaining, I’m just very impressed. It’s a global phenomenon so I’m not surprised to hear about this Canadian’s homage to the magical franchise.

The storms that have been plaguing parts of Canada have created major trouble and accidents. However, from the ice and snow have come some really cool creations. The Edmonton area of Alberta is home to ice carver Kelly Davies who took to his yard to create some artwork from the frozen piles of ice and snow left from the storms. Global News reported that he even had to scavenge a bit from the old material he used for the January’s Deep Freeze Festival to create this wizarding wonderland.
“A lot of that festival happens in a parking lot… So at the end of the festival, they need that parking lot back and literally, half of this ice was just bulldozed off to the side to sit and melt. So, me being me — a scavenger — I got permission to take what I could and I did.”
He began with a slide for his kids, then got to work on the classic furnishings of the Hogwarts setting. It’s taken him forty hours to build, but I’d say the effort shows in every awesome carving. I think this is wicked since I can only make ice cubes. What you do Potterheads think?:
