First celebrated in 1985, the Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival was inspired by Heilongjiang’s traditional lanterns, which were carved out of ice and illuminated by candles.Celebrating its 35th year in 2019, it’s now considered one of the world’s top winter festivals, joining the ranks of the Sapporo Snow Festival in Japan, Canada’s Quebec Winter Carnival and Norway’s Holmenkollen Ski Festival.
