Coming soon - Pärnu Icefestival 18.-27. February 2011
The Pärnu Ice Festival brings some of the summer fun back to the wintry resort, presenting a wide range of activities over 9 days. You can go hiking and take part in sports competitions, there is music and dance, theatre and workshops, a food party and master classes, snow picnics and sleigh rides, and to top it all off Estonia's birthday!
