The 33rd Sun Island International Snow Sculpture Art Expo started trial operations on Dec 20 in Harbin, the capital city of China’s northernmost Heilongjiang province.
The first day attracted around 9,000 tourists to admire 50 sets of exquisite snow sculptures.
Around 90,000 cubic meters of snow were used to carve these snow sculptures.

The expo’s display area for snow sculptures is divided into six zones and one park. 
Snow sculptures at the expo are themed as “Chinese Dragon,” “Snowfalls Welcome Spring,” “Century Look Back,” “Looking Around” and “Thermometer and Koi.”
