Harbin, China ice sculpture festival draws media attention


Some media stations presented the Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival in Harbin, China, in the far Northeastern part, where the average January high is less than 10 F (colder than Minneapolis in the US).

One of the best picture slide shows appears at Boston.com at this link.

Here is “A Day and Night at the Harbin Ice Festival” (ptravel).


The festival makes the St. Paul Winter Carval in Minnesota look rather meager.

Other Youtube videos produced in China mention Japanese atrocities in Harbin and Manchuria during and before WWII.
