Harbin’s internationally acclaimed ice sculptures are going on holiday to America this festive season!
An exhibit celebrating the popular TV show SpongeBob Squarepants will be on show in Galveston, Texas. The displays are made out of 900 tons of ice, made by 29 sculptors who flew in especially from Harbin. As part of preparation for the spectacle, the first ice cube was frozen in February, nearly 10 months ago. It is going to be amazing, as ice has been made in a range of different colours.
Harbin, in Heilongjiang province, is famous for its ice festival, which is held every year. For more information on this years’ ice festival, keep an eye on our front page! The festival generally opens in early January and attracts huge amounts of tourists from all over the world.
