Spectacular sculptures at Harbin Ice and Snow Festival

January 5, 2012
Harbin International Ice Festival is one of world’s four largest international ice festivals, along with Japan’s Sapporo Snow Festival, Canada’s Quebec Winter Carnival, and Norway’s Ski Festival. It starts annually on January 5 and lasts usually to the end of February, weather permitting.

During this period, people throughout the world take part in the various artist, cultural, athletic and tourist events. The 28th Harbin Ice and Snow Festival will start on January 5, 2012. It is a great winter festival and if you are in China during this period, it really should not be missed.
