Mindblowing Ice Sculputes and the World’s Largest Father Christmas – 25th Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival: China (11 photos)

It’s like China’s version of Disneyland on Ice. These impressive ice sculptures are part of a display for the upcoming Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival. As well as the colorful life-sized ice buildings, which reflect traditional Chinese architecture, there is also a 160m (524ft) high Father Christmas sculpture, said by organizers to be the world’s largest. The Festival, established in 1985, is held annually from January 5 and lasts for over one month. An estimated 800,000 tourists, 90 percent of them Chinese, are expected to visit the ice festival, said Jia Yan, director of the local tourism bureau.

This is an awe inspiring event every year!
