Winter Fest is coming to town, blowing tons of family fun into the OC Fair & Event Center. Winter Fest is a giant wonderland of immersive wintry fun featuring a full outdoor ice rink, a 150-foot, eight-lane Snowflake Summit ice slide, a play park featuring real snow blown in daily for snow angels and snowman building, photos on the world’s largest rocking horse, inside a giant snow globe and on Santa’s lap, strolling carolers and personal visits in the cabin of Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Plus, there’s a Festival of Lights walk-through holiday light show featuring more than two million sparkling lights. See Santa and his reindeer as they actually fly over the fairgrounds during the nightly Christmas tree lighting, snowfall and firework show until Santa returns to the North Pole. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can shred the gnar on a snowball simulator and fly across the fairgrounds on the Winter Fest zip line. There will also be live shows and meet-and-greets from kids’ TV and movie favorites, including Thomas the Train and Sid the Science Kid. Winter Fest is also packed with over 30 carnival rides and games, a petting zoo, craft-making activities and plenty of Instagram-worthy picture opportunities. Your ticket includes a fast pass, so you can skip the lines and go down the Snowflake Summit ice tubing slide. Go for the season pass and return as many times as you would like over the 18-day run of SoCal’s favorite winter experience!
