2013 Harbin Snow and Ice Festival

The opening ceremony of the 2013 Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival Opening Ceremony took place on the evening of January 5, 2013 in the Harbin International Conference Exhibition and Sports Center, Harbin. The proceedings of the festival combined the formal and ceremonial opening, including welcoming speeches, setting off fireworks, and a series of theatrical performances. The theme for the 29th Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival is "City of Ice and Snow • Festal Heaven and Earth". The three main venues of Harbin Ice Festival are Sun Island, Zhaolin Park, and the Ice and Snow World.
