In frozen Harbin, China, a festival of ice

For 30 years, Harbin in the far northeastern corner of China has hosted an increasingly famous winter extravaganza – the Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival. Each November, workers start hauling massive blocks of ice out of the frozen Songhua River. Using cranes, chainsaws, picks, lasers and LED lights, they use these blocks to construct a colorful fantasy land that becomes more astonishing each year.
