|420--Texas: Ice is bigger in Texas|

Cherie and Greg in an ice-forest in a 14,000-square-foot "ICE!" exhibit in Grapevine, Texas.
In 2008 the ice-carvings included Old Man Winter, a massive Santa, four ice-slides, an ice cave, an ice forest, an ice bridge with an ice pond, a ice nativity scene, ice elves, over-sized ice ornaments, a 25-ft tall ice angel and an ice gingerbread house surrounded by cool (you guessed it!) icy treats.
Thanks to forty visiting Chinese artists, you don’t have to travel to Harbin, China to see ice carvings of this quality. But bundle up, the ice sculptures are kept at 9°. Visiting Ice! is a great way to slide into the Christmas season.
