ICE At Gaylord Palms 2013

ICE show

It will soon once again be time for the ICE show, located in the giant Gaylord Palms resort in Kissimmee. For those who don’t know, each year Gaylord palms trucks in hundreds of tons of ice around the holidays.

The award-winning ICE! attraction is carved by a team of 40 artisans from Harbin, China. The talented artisans spend more than a month in Kissimmee/Orlando creating this one-of-a-kind attraction.

Harbin is best known for its annual International Ice and Snow Festival, where more than 2,000 sculptors annually carve a 100-acre walk-through ice park, using ice from the nearby Songhua River.
