Another part of the ice festival is the snow sculptures. I liked this more than the ice sculptures: they were less over-the-top, they were displayed in a park, there were a lot fewer people, and there was a lot of variety. It also helped that it was a beautiful day with very low air pollution (we couldÂ even see the blue sky!).
The upcoming year will be the year of the ram, so there were a lot of sheep designs.

A disappointingly large number of sculptures were of western things like Disney.

No, that’s not made of snow. It’s part of the park’s permanent landscaping.
At least Darwin is appreciated somewhere!
