Every year, local artisans in a Chinese town on the border of Siberia construct an entire village made of ice. Scratch village, make that kingdom. The Harvin Ice Festival, now celebrating its 29th year, seriously gives Disney World a run for its money, filled with crystal castles, fantastical dragons, an ice rink, and epic frozen slides. Oh, and did we mention that the whole thing is lit up with psychedelic LED lights? It’s like the Magic Kingdom on acid!
The festival opened on January 5 and runs through the end of the month. Click through to see more photos!
