We went here twice, once at night and once in the daytime. We enjoyed it both times and ended up getting "street food" twice with no ill effects. At midblock on most blocks there is an ice sculpture (sadly, with a sponsor), on one block at midblock, perhaps halfway down the pedestrian street, there is an outdoor foodstall arrangement. Lost...

nice that it's pedestrianized (including scooters) but this is just a shopping street full of tourist shops, fast food joints etc with some fairy lights in the trees. wouldn't be a 'sight' anywhere else in the world

I really didn't feel I'm in China. It's a pretty little street with stunning architecture and many ice sculptures as a part of the winter festival. There's a tourist info centre(go there, it's a beautiful building), many shops and restaurants on this street..

Bargains to be had in the various shops, candied fruit for sale from vending carts, and a few corporately sponsored ice sculptures. Perhaps the best part about it is that there are 3 of the city's 4 Starbucks on the street (one hidden above the Walgreen's drug store).

In the daytime you can enjoy the Russian influence on the architecture of buildings in this street, many shops, restaurants and cafes, and in the evening the whole street is lit up and becomes quite magical. We were there during the Ice and Snow festival so there were many ice and snow sculptures in the street, some lit up at... More

This street is less than a half day activity unless you intend to take a lot of photos with the ice and snow sculptures. I personally felt the best ones are located closest to the river. The famous ice cream that you'll see people down this street eating is from '1906' (see photo).

There are lots of ice sculptures along the street during the Harbin ice festival, some big, some small.
