Snow Days in Orange County!

Snow Days in Orange County!

Snow Sledding

This year’s winter in Southern California is going on record as one of the coldest winters in my book!  And I love every moment of it!  Being able to wear a pair of mittens, scarf and a hat during the day, but especially at night, reminds me of when I grew up in Northern California.  Our winters up north were always usually between 30 – 50 degrees.  Here is Southern California, I am lucky if it gets below 55 degrees during the day.  But not this year!

To continue with the winter frenzy, I plan to take Field Trip Boy and Girl to one of the following city sponsored Snow Days in Orange County.  Now the decision is…which one!

Please refer to each city’s individual website for dates, times and pricing information.

January 18

Rancho Santa Margarita – Enjoy sledding, snow play, music and a meet and greet with a few special guests from Frozen at Central Park.  Tickets go on sale beginning Monday, January 5, 2015.

January 24

Aliso Viejo – From 10:30 a.m. -3:00 p.m, this popular event transforms the Aliso Viejo Town Center Grand Park into a winter wonderland with over 50 tons of snow. Wristbands for entry into snow areas are $5.00 per person with children age one & under free.

Lake Forest – SnowFest returns, bigger then ever, with 75 tons of snow. Get ready to climb and slide down Mount Pittsford at the greatest snow day celebration in Orange County. Besides the Snow there will be carnival rides, balloon artist, face painters, game booths and surprises. Be sure to bring your camera as there will be special guests from all over the galaxy and frozen friends.

January 31

Fullerton – Snow Day at Brea Dam Park.  Tons of frosty snow will be delivered to the park to enable youngsters to sled, make snow people, and have old-fashioned snowball battles. Children are advised to wear warm clothes and gloves. The event time is 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

And just in case you can’t make it to an official snow day, you can always visit your local ice skating rink to get your winter on!

Happy Field Tripping,
