Taebaek Festival Features Super-sized Snow Sculptures


TAEBAEK, Jan. 8 (Korea Bizwire)The city of Taebaek in Gangwon Province, also known as ‘Winter City,’ proudly holds a snow festival every year.

This year marks the 26th iteration of the event, and the city is planning to exhibit ice sculptures of 12 great figures from mythology.

There will be six ice sculptures on display at Dangol square, including the door of mythology, temple of 12 mythological figures, a dragon and a goblin, the hills of Taebaek wind and the city of Taebaek.


This year’s Taebaeksan Mountain Snow Festival will be held for 17 days from January 18 to February 3.

Since the exhibition of snow sculptures is a representative program of the Taebaeksan Mountain Snow Festival, super-sized sculptures 50 meters long, 8 meters high and 5 meters wide will be exhibited.

Over the past 25 years, the festival has exhibited hundreds of sculptures and recreated 14 popular sculptures of past displays last year.

However, this year’s festival is going to be even more special with super-sized sculptures on display.
