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.
