I know we’re not even past Halloween yet, but here at Dangerous Cupcake Lifestyle, we’re all about planning ahead during this busy holiday season! To help you do that, too — and pack as much winter fun as possible — we’re giving away four tickets to Southern California’s premiere winter fun festival, Winter Fest OC 2017 so you can have Winter Fest fun, too!
Last year was my family’s first time in attendance. It was such a cold night, it was very fitting for the event. We went sliding down hills, drank hot cocoa, saw Santa, walked through the festival of lights and so much more. The highlight of my evening? I went ice skating! I grew up on a farm and I first ice skated when I was three, on a pond on our large property. Winter Fest OC was the first time I’d put ice skates back on in a long while and it was a blast! (And I didn’t fall!)
The event runs from December 21 through January 7th, so it makes a great family experience while everyone’s out of school on holiday break. Winter Fest is providing me with complimentary tickets to take my family on a media night in December, so we get to experience Winter Fest fun again! With tickets starting at only $10, it’s also affordable. Santa’s Petting Zoo, making crafts in Santa’s Workshop, ice tubing, a snowboard simulator, arcade games, bounce houses, nightly snowfall and Christmas tree lighting — you’ll find plenty to do throughout the evening. I didn’t tube but check out my biggest kid (the husband) and my youngest racing down the hill together.
There is also an opportunity to play in the snow, something that many of us SoCal people don’t get to do nearly enough! Bring your mittens and wear your coats, you will want to stay warm!

Winter fun isn’t just for families though. If you’re looking for a place to hold a private party or a corporate holiday event, consider Winter Fest OC. You’ll get your own private space in cozy VIP cabanas and you can also add in VIP skating access. VIP cabanas are also available for family rental and their location makes them a great place to eat, drink and watch the entertainment on the ice. (In addition to skating, there are on-ice performances.)
