In China, people are holding the 32nd year of the Snow and Ice Festival. People made ice sculptures of many things, like birds, buffalos and even mythological creatures.

Thousands of tourists come to the festival every year. In the beginning, only the Chinese participated, but these days, people from over the world come to the festival. One man was from Barcelona, Spain.

People come because the festival is really big.

Difficult words: sculpture (a 3D model of something), mythological creature (a person or an animal which exists only in stories), participate (to do something – to make an ice sculpture at the festival).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
