Ice Festival Pictures: Day 1: Ice Structures Posted on January 19, 2015 by Den Hoopingarner The Harbin ice festival has two parks. One is for ice structures and sculptures, and the other is for snow sculptures. The ice structure exhibit is best viewed at night, when you can get the full effect of the laser light show that is modern China. No, this is not made of ice. It’s China bling. But it looks pretty. Mrs. Hoopie, wouldn’t it make a nice quilt pattern? Proof that I was there Next year will be the year of the sheep/ram Ice Castle! Scariest stairs in the world (ice is slippery, right?!) Inside the castle Proof that I was there Ice sculpture Frosty Buddha This one’s for you, Marg! Corporate sponsorship: Snow Beer (not MONS Beer). Corporate sponsorship: Harbin Beer.
