Ice Festival in Harbin, China

It doesn't happen until early January, but soon thousands of sculptors and volunteers will begin to create this ice city. I remember a winter festival with lit ice sculptures at Angrignon Park when I was a kid but I don't think it would have quite compared to this...!

Of course, all I keep thinking about is the amount of water they are removing from the river (pssst...just look at the pretty lights).

The Harbin Ice Festival is one of the highlights in the BBC series WILD CHINA. It takes ten-thousand people four weeks to build this winter wonderland, which draws spectators from all over China and the world.
