More about Harbin Ice and Snow Festival 

Harbin is the capital city of the Heilongjiang Province which is the most north-easterly part of China and borders Russia. During the long cold winter months the temperature can drop down to as low as -22°F (-30°C). Snow carvings, ice lanterns, fireworks display and snow recreations make Harbin one of China's most popular winter destinations. Skiing and ice sliding are popular activities. More amazing is winter swimming in the Songhua River, not for the faint of heart.

Harbin International Ice Festival is one of world's four largest international ice festivals, along with Japan's Sapporo Snow Festival, Canada's Quebec Winter Carnival, and Norway's Ski Festival. It starts annually on January 5 and lasts usually to the end of February, weather permitting. During this period, people throughout the world take part in the various artist, cultural, athletic and tourist events. The 30th Harbin Ice and Snow Festival will start on January 5, 2014. It is a great winter festival and if you are in China during this period, it really should not be missed.

What's on during the festival: Snow Sculpture Expo, Ice Lantern Garden Party, the skiing contest, football match on the snow covered land, figure skating competition, tauto rally on ice, theatrical performances and economic and trade talks.

I am in Harbin the next weekend. Is the Ice Festival still open on the weekend 9/10 th of March 2013?

China Holidays
Dear Traveler, thanks for your question. But unfortunately the Ice and Snow Festival will be closed around 10th March. But the weather is becoming warmer and warmer these days, most of the sculptures is melting. It might be impossible to visit there on 9th–10th March. It is a little bit pity, but you can visit Harbin at the end of this year or beginning of next year if your time allowed. Best regards, China Holidays Beijing
