Amazing ice sculptures in China

Slide at the annual Ice and Snow Festival in Harbin, China

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

A festival with enormous ice sculptures resembling famous buildings, places and people is expected to draw millions of visitors in China.

Sculptors in the city of Harbin have spent weeks carving out the ice models for the annual event that starts on Wednesday.

There's even a massive frozen slide and lots of multicoloured lights to shine on the icy models.

And if you spot a bunny or two, then it's because in February Chinese people will celebrate it being the Year of the Rabbit!
