The festival was originally started in 1985 and it's an annual celebration, which starts from end of December till February, mostly during the coldest of the months. The first ice lanterns was setup during the Qing dynasty, farmers used to fill their buckets with water and left them to freeze. Then they were warmed slightly before removing the bucket shaped ice. A hole was made in the ice and then a lit candle was placed inside to make them look like lanterns, over a period of time, they have changed and many new architectures are created and it's lit up to make them glow.

The Ice and snow sculptures are mostly displayed in three places: The Sun island park, Ice and snow world and the Zhaolin Park.
