ICE! How the Grinch Stole Christmas

At the Gaylord National Resort in National Harbor, Maryland, 40 artisans from Harbin, China sculpted a 15,000 square foot ice show depicting scenes from the famous Dr. Seuss book, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The exhibit is kept at nine-degrees fahrenheit and visitors bulk on blue parkas to brave the chill and enjoy the whimsical holiday event.
