It’s that time of year again.  Ready or not, Christmas is upon us!  Gaylord Palms is getting the ball rolling for the season and just announced this year’s theme for their annual event, ICE!.

In celebration of the 15th anniversary of ICE!, this year’s event theme will be Christmas Around the World.  The ice sculptures will represent a variety of flags around the world, a two story slide, Santa’s workshop, and a traditional Nativity scene.  The exhibit, which will contain two million pounds of ice, will be carved by ice artists all the way from Harbin, China!

“We’re excited to bring this theme to Central Florida, especially since the Orlando area hosts millions of visitors from around the world each year,” said Johann Krieger, general manager for Gaylord Palms Resort. “We feel this year’s Ice! theme and our other holiday events embrace cultural diversity and our unifying similarities, celebrating love and peace during this special time of year.”
