I don’t know about you but my December calendar is already packed with so much good stuff it’s hard to pick and choose. So many celebrations, so many tamales to make, so many wonderful things to do with my family. One thing we’re really looking forward to is Winter Fest 2016 happening at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa.
Living here in sunny So Cal, we don’t get to experience a “white Christmas”. To see some snow, we have to pack up and head to the mountains. Where we live, we’re lucky if it’s chilly enough to wear a hoodie and we turn up the heater at notch or two. To get our snow fix, we go to fun places that create winter wonderlands like Winter Fest 2016.
What’s in store at Winter Fest 2016?
- arcade games
- train exhibits
- ice tubing
- snow play (bring on the snow angels!)
- bounce houses
- photos with Santa
- festival of lights
- nightly fireworks
- Santa’s petting zoo
- cartoon character live shows and meet & greets
- ceremony with snowfall
Note: some activities require an additional fee.
My kids are excited to climb Snowflake Summit — snow tubing down a 130 foot, 6 lane ice slide! This experience is included in every admission ticket to Winter Fest.
Winter Fest 2016 is taking place on December 16th 2016 to January 1st 2017. Tickets start at $10! Get your tickets here.
We’ll see you there! Happy holidays.
