The 27th Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival with the themed "Merry Ice and Snow, Passionate City" kicked off on Jan. 5. Once everything is in place, the city of Harbin will be transformed into a frosted fairytale land.

Every year, Ice and Snow World is the highlight of the event and also the biggest of its kind in the world. This year, organizers have teamed up with Disney to construct a Disney Ice and Snow Wonderland. It will take up an area of 600,000 square meters — three times the size of last year's.
