Harbin Ice & Snow Festival Attracts Visitors

The 30th International Ice and Snow Festival opened early this year in Harbin with the theme “Dreamy Snow Forest and Magic Ice Animation.” Featuring majestic ice castles and sculptures of fairytale characters, the millions of LED lights create a colorful and warm aura to the icy wonderland.

More than 10,000 people were involved in designing and crafting the sculptures and the globally recognized festival is expected to draw more than 13 million domestic and international visitors. The Harbin Snow & Ice Festival, which is located in Harbin in China’s Heilongjiang Province, will run through the end of February.
