The Grand World of Ice and Snow was built at the bank of the Songhua River at the end of 1999. It's held every year. It gathers the elite of the ice and snow arts of the world.
It combines the ice and snow with recreation. It mixes the new creative ideas, artistic presentation, mass participation and recreation.
The scene is majestic. It's reputed as "the Ice and Snow Epic Picture". Since the holding of the Grand World of Ice and Snow, the sites change regularly.
