Icons don't just happen overnight; the American Express Queenstown Winter Festival 2012 has been 38 glorious years in the making.
Way back in 1975 a bunch of locals decided that the start of winter was a great excuse to have a party.
They organised races on the mountain and in town, lollies for the kids, beers for the grown-ups, a concert or two and a town-wide ball, all of which made the Festival a great success. News spread quickly and the next year people came from further afield to join the festivities.
