So, in our first post, I would like to update you about the newest and most relevant attraction Jerusalem has to offer during the month of March. This year, Jerusalem has the honor to host the “International Ice Festival in Jerusalem“. The ice festival will take place in the old train station plaza, entrance from David Remez St., near the Liberty Bell Park, and will include a variety of activities for both children and adults: a fairy-tale world; a food court and ice bar; ice skating; storytelling, live music performances and a reproduction of the City of Jerusalem in ice. The temperature in the Festival building will be -10 degrees Celsius in order for the ice exhibits to stay frozen.
The International Ice Festival takes place in many major cities around the world and is coming to Jerusalem now for the first time. To make this Festival happen, a special complex of 1,500 meters sq. was imported from Belgium for this purpose. In addition, during February 2012, 35 artists, sculptors, lighting specialists, decorators and builders have come to Jerusalem especially in order to build the festival compound. So, be sure not to miss it!!!
The Festival is open for visitors weekdays and weekends:
Sun.-Tur.: 10:00 – 23:00 Fri.: 10:00 – 14:00 Sat. night: 19:30 – 22:00
