The Durham Fire & Ice Festival got underway on Saturday, despite the wet weather.
The festival displays a collection of ice sculptures themed around the words 'Travelling through time'.
Watch Kris Jepson's report here:
Exhibits include models of the Delorean from Back to the Future, Tardis from Dr Who and Stephenson's Rocket.
This is the fifth event, which the organisers say is the biggest daytime event in Durham.
The artists crafting the ice sculptures, Glacial Art, are former Sunderland Uni students who also worked on the sets for Game of Thrones.
