Here in Southern California, we don’t get a lot of snow at Christmas time. Actually, we don’t get any snow ever. So you can see why I’m SO excited about the return of Winter Fest at the OC Fair and Event Center! It’s SoCal’s Ultimate Winter experience and a holiday must-do for everyone! We had the opportunity to go last year and it was so much fun! winterfest-signThis year, Winter Fest will open on Friday, December 16 and go through January 1! There is so much to see and do and you’ll find yourself smiling a lot, among all of the merriment you’ll find there. My daughter hasn’t stopped talking about the snow at Winter Fest since last year! winterfest-its-snowingHere’s a little preview of what you can expect to find at Winter Fest: 

Did you see they have real snow? I’m super excited for it again, as well as a lot of the other activities they’re going to have! I just love ice skating outdoors and also ice tubing, especially in the warm Southern California Winter weather! We are so fortunate to be able to have the best of both worlds: a warm Winter and (faux) snow! winterfest-nightly-snowWinter Fest admission tickets start at just $10 and are a great value.

  1. We’ve never been to Winter Fest so we would be most excited to check it out for the first time and explore all the holiday fun it has to offer. I’m sure my boys would love it!
