From New York To Quebec City, Ice Hotel Celebrates 5th Anniversary in Style

Ice Hotel featured on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on January 18, 2005 and held a spectacular inauguration party for its 5th season on January 19th.

Quebec, Canada (PRWEB) January 25, 2005 -- After being featured on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and its spectacular inauguration party, it is sure that Ice Hotel knows how to celebrate.

On January 18, New Yorkers and “Good Morning America” viewers were able to admire a sample of the real Quebec Ice Hotel. A bedroom, ice bar and a lounge were created for the occasion in the heart of Times Square, on the corner of 44th Street and Broadway. The eye-catching display was made overnight with 33,000 lbs of ice. “It was magical,” says Jacques Desbois, CEO of the Ice Hotel Quebec-Canada. “The superb collaboration between the Ice Hotel, Good Morning America, Tourisme Québec, and the Greater Quebec Area Tourism and Convention Bureau teams allowed for a truly successful event, and we are proud of everyone.”

Colorful Official 5th Anniversary Opening Night
The Ice Hotel team returned to Quebec City just in time to complete the preparations for the 5th Anniversary celebration of the Ice Hotel in Quebec. On January 19, more than 300 guests enjoyed a hot inauguration party that began with stunning juggling and fire breathing performances by street creators who amazed the crowd with their skills. This was followed by a breathtaking pyro-musical fireworks display created by the award winning team of Royal Pyrotechnie, after which the arched doors of Ice Hotel Quebec-Canada 2005 were officially opened.

The light snow, fantasy setting and unique atmosphere of the Ice Hotel combined for an enchanting evening as the party continued with performances in the charming Ice Chapel by the Monteregie Gospel Choir and the Ice Band heated things up in the bigger than ever N’ice Club.

It is the ideal time to come visit or stay at the Ice Hotel.
