International Ice Festival Comes to Jerusalem



From March 6th through April 4th, Jerusalem’s Old Train Station compound is set to unveil a frosty version of the Holy City dubbed “Ice City,” under the framework of the first-ever Jerusalem International Ice Festival.  The festival grounds include an ice bar, an acrobatics show, ice models of Jerusalem landmarks – from the Tower of David to the famed Mifletzet slide – and exhibits based on popular fairy tales and Biblical stories.

The festival is worthy of its “International” moniker both in terms of its concept (35 artisans from China are currently hard at work, sculpting away) and in terms of visitors (with hundreds of thousands of visitors from Israel and abroad expected to check in over the course of the event).
