The Gaylord Texan is a hotel and conference center in Grapevine, Texas. This year it’s popular ICE! winter holiday attraction is themed "ICE! featuring DreamWorks’ Shrek the Halls."
The display of colorful ice sculptures runs from Nov. 11 to Jan. 1. The sculptures are carved entirely from two million pounds of ice.
According to the Gaylord Texan, ICE! is created by dozens of artisans who migrate to the Dallas/Fort Worth area each year from Harbin, China to craft the attraction. It takes them nearly an entire month of 12-hour shifts to transform the refrigerated tent where the exhibit is held into a remarkable icy wonderland. If you go, be sure to dress warmly; ICE! is kept at 9° Fahrenheit.
