Headlines Around the World: Ice City, ice-do and ice music

Checking out the coldest stories from China and Sweden on this edition of Headlines Around the World.

CHINA: The waiting is over. The world's largest ice city is open for 2013.  It's China's Harbin Ice and Snow Festival where more than 2,000 works of glowing ice art (covering over 6.5 million square feet) are on display.
But all that ice couldn't give these sixteen couples cold feet. They had a mass wedding in the sub-zero conditions. After saying their "I do's," the shivering couples tried to cut a frozen giant wedding cake.
SWEDEN: A Swedish band released their new single "Blue Ice" while on ice. The band sent out kits to fans with a silicone record mold. All they need to do is add some distilled H2O, freeze. and it actually plays like a vinyl record.
