Resort brings Whoville to life in ice

A Texas resort is kicking off the holiday season with an exhibit that brings Dr. Seuss' fictional Whoville to life...in ice. The Gaylord Texan hotel and convention center in Grapevine partnered with Dr. Seuss to create a colorful exhibit of "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" made almost entirely of ice.

"In past years, we did more traditional, Christmas ice displays, and this year, with Dr. Seuss, it is just very colorful; very whimsical," says the Texan's Martha Neibling. Over 5,000 blocks of ice, weighing in at almost two million pounds were handcrafted by artisans for the exhibit which runs through January 3rd.
