Winter Fest OC Review Jan 2, 2019
Updated: Jan 12, 2019
Have you been to Winder Fest OC. If you haven't, you still have time. It's going on until the 6th of January.
Winterfest is one of my favorite holiday outings, I look forward to it each year. It's a must on our list of things to do. The kids really enjoy it. It can get a little cold, make sure you bundle up and if your little ones are sensitive to noise, like mine, make sure you take your headphones.
They have such a wonderful venue and so many things to do. There's no doubt the amount of fun you will have.

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.
