This year’s holiday season at Moody Gardens will feature the icy work of art with a “Rainforest Holiday” theme, for which the artists are working as a team in shifts. Over the course of the next 43 days, the team will work around the clock, turning two million pounds of ice into something magical, making it a unique Gulf Coast Texas Christmas experience.
