Do you have a tradition that you do every year with your family? For the last 4 years, we have had one! We had to Gaylord Opryland in Nashville to see ICE! Every year! And every year, we are never disappointed. Each year is a different theme! For example, 2013 was Frosty The Snowman, 2014 was 'Twas The Night Before Christmas, and 2015 was The Nutcracker. This year for 2016, the theme is my all time favorite- Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!!! Gaylord Opryland ICE!- Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!!
Experience favorite scenes from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer brought to life in magnificent sculptures hand-carved from more than TWO million pounds of ice at this Nashville holiday event. Each piece is hand-carved by 40 artisans from Harbin, China too! Check out my photos below!They have so many photo opps in here and we took advantage. How cute is this?!
The detail is just amazing and I couldn't believe it. I am always blown away every year. When you arrive inside, they give you a parka and you get to take a photo!
I did not take photos of them, but with each scene is a sign that tells the story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
The colors and details are just gorgeous!I love this story and it was adorable walking through seeing it come to life before our eyes!
Each piece is so realistic and just gorgeous!
This brings back memories of watching it as a child on tv for sure!
My favorite scene!!!
The room below was packed, too packed to get a photo, however, if you check out the links in the beginning, every year they have Four two-story tall ice slides. These are so fun watching kids slide down them! Adults slide down them too.See what I was talking about the photo opps? Lydia and I just love that face! He is SO CUTE!!!!
I am so thrilled that we were able to go again and experience it again because it is just adorable in every way.It came to an end and we were so happy with everything that we seen!!!
Every year they have a nativity scene carved from ice and it is always so beautiful!
Check out the detail! Pics do NOT do justice! They are GORGEOUS!!
I almost forgot to tell you about the On the Blocks ICE! Bar! 'Chill out' at On The Blocks—the exclusive bar inside ICE!
