Piano-playing reached new heights at the 31st Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival, where the visitors were treated to a huge ice piano keyboard of 21 keys with LED lights that actually produced music. Probably the first such piano ever seen anywhere in the world, this magical ice piano quickly became a hit with locals and tourists alike.

4. There is a small market if you want to get some snacks
5. Max 30 minutes in and out unless you want to go hiking. It has some trails but we didn't do them.

Overall a nice little stop for some pictures.
