January 5th was the first day of the China's 27th Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival. Visitors can explore the amazing ice sculptures, snow carvings and firework display throughout the month of January each year. The ice festival originated in 1963 and is the world's 4th largest. The sculptures of Victorian homes, pagodas, castles and other traditional architectural styles are unbelievable. At night, the sculptures and carvings are lit up, carriage rides go trotting, and fireworks light up the sky- seems to me that the Harbin Ice Festival is a frozen Disneyland.
