We had such a fun day day at ICE festival Gaylord National Harbor. Basically, you are given these big blue WARM coats to wear before you enter a huge area that is about 7 degrees and filled with characters from the movie Merry Madagascar that are carved out of ICE! They also had slides that were made of ice. Keep in mind when viewing the pictures below that EVERYTHING you see (except for the floor and my kids) is made of ICE! It was totally cool.

Before we got our coats, we watched a short little clip of the movie Merry Madagascar and then a video explaining how the sculptures were made. They flew in the ice and the artists who sculpted them from China!

Mikey and Daddy watching the video-

Another incredible one-

It was such a nice day (60’s) that we decided to walk around National Harbor (a waterfront shopping and dining area) and have lunch-
