A large ice castle lit up with multicolored lights is viewed through another ice sculpture at Zhaolin Park in Harbin, China.

Each year, the city holds the International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival in January. The festival features large ice sculptures, ice lanterns, ice slides, ice castles and even opportunities to take a frosty dip in the freezing Songhua River.
