Winter is coming and so is the holiday season, so I’ve got the perfect holiday event for your to add to your calendar! I’m hosting a Winter Fest OC ticket giveaway through 12/16/18, so you can enter for a chance to win a four-pack of tickets to this season’s coolest winter event in the OC!
Winter Fest OC is the largest winter experience in Southern California, running from December 20 through January 6. Featuring 40,000 square feet of winter fun, including sledding, real snow play, ice skating and more! Winter Fest OC 2017 had record-breaking attendance, and with all the new things happening this year, and returning favorites, it’s sure to be another big year!
Straight from the source, here’s some of things you and your family can do!
New to Winter Fest This Year:
SoCal Dicken’s Village – Take a trip down memory lane through the 1800’s with holidays past, present, and future. Decorate Christmas cookies, listen to holiday storytelling, visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus (through Christmas Eve), take a pony ride, and visit the new Victorian holiday shops.
Candy and Snowflake Wonderland – Step into an interactive wonderland full of candy and snowflakes with a new selfie experience that is sure to delight visitors and capture the picture-perfect Instagram moment.
Festival of Lights – Stroll through Winter Fest’s 100-foot-tunnel of two million lights to explore five lands with animated displays. For additional fun for the kids, make sure to ride through the Festival of Lights on the trackless train.
Orange Ball New Year’s Eve Celebration – Ring in the New Year not once, but twice, with a special countdown, Orange Ball drop, fireworks and an unforgettable balloon drop at both 6pm and midnight. Multiple live bands will be playing to commemorate the end of the year, and the start of a new one.
Club Winter Fest – Private, ice rink-side VIP cabanas are available nightly starting at only $69 per session, creating the ultimate destination for holiday office parties, family retreats or date nights. Enjoy the all-new lounge area with exquisite views of the nightly Christmas tree lighting ceremony featuring fireworks, snow flurries and a free drink upon entry. Tickets are limited.
Back by Popular Demand:
Snowflake Summit – Visit Snowflake Summit for unlimited ice-tube racing down the 150 foot, eight lane slide. Fast Pass wristbands are available starting at only $10 to skip the general admission line.
Flying Santa and his Reindeer – Don’t miss the magic of the North Pole as Santa and his reindeer fly over the fairgrounds December 20th – December 24th. This spectacle takes place during the nightly Christmas Tree Lighting celebration and features fireworks and snow flurries.
Penny’s Snow Play – Fresh snow blown in daily to make SoCal’s largest snow play attraction with two snow arenas: one caters to toddlers and the other to kids (and kids at heart.)
On January 6th, you can also celebrate Three Kings’ Day, where the tradition of the Three Kings will be honored with a parade and live camel. What a fun way to end the holiday season!
