A beloved Nashville tradition is back. Friday, November 10, visitors are invited to take a tour through Gaylord Opryland's  ICE!® featuring A Charlie Brown Christmas .

Ten hours and day, for 30-some days, ice carvers transform more than 2-million pounds of ice into works of art.  

"You’ve got the lights going on, the music. Each section is telling the story of 'A Charlie Brown Christmas,'" said Jenny Barker, PR Director for the Gaylord Opryland Resort.

The temperature inside is brisk, sitting at about 9-degrees.

"We give each guest a stylish blue parka," she said. 

The ice-carvers hail from Harbin, China near Siberia. They brave the freezing temperatures for 10 to 12 hour shifts.

Wang Shuwei started working as an ice-carver in 1983. He is part of a team of about 40 artisans who turn the brightly colored-ice into incredibly detailed sculptures. 

The carvers have been in Nashville since mid-October and said the city has been is very welcoming.

ICE!® featuring A Charlie Brown Christmas opens November 10, 2017 and runs through January 1, 2018. For more information click here
