Holiday Family Fun: Winter Fest OC

We visited as a guest of the venue

Winter is my favorite season, and part of that is because of the holidays and all the fun lights and decorations. I also love the cold weather and sipping on hot cocoa with my family. This year, my family and I attended Winter Fest OC at the OC Fair Grounds. I knew from the minute I heard of it that it was going to be a blast and I was right! The event featured so many fun activities that we stayed until eleven o clock at night!

There is ice skating, carnival rides, snow tubing, food, and many more fun activities. My younger brothers favorite was the ice skating, while my older brother and I loved all of the thrilling carnival rides. Snow tubing was an enjoyable way to bring the cold, snowy weather into Southern California. I saw many kids sliding down in the tubes with their families, and everyone had huge smiles on their faces.

Another entertaining thing about Winter fest OC is the Festival of Lights. The Festival of Lights is thousands of holiday lights all hung up to tell stories. In the beginning, there is a massive tunnel of holiday lights that you can walk through and admire all of them. Once you get out of the tunnel, there is a set path for you to walk along with your loved ones and look and all of the different setups of holiday Lights. My personal favorite was the one of the mermaid swimming in the ocean with all of the fish.

You can’t go to the OC Fair Grounds and not expect to eat tasty carnival food and play carnival games. My older brother and I competed to see who could win the carnival games and dared each other to ride the scariest possible rides. Winter Fest OC features some of your favorite carnival food stands with many different varieties of food. They also added one with homemade hot chocolate which was my favorite – yum!

The Winter Fest OC is here until January 7, 2018. Even though the holidays are over, don’t let your spirit disappear with all of their beautiful decorations. Winter Fest OC is located at the OC Fair Grounds. Tickets are available online.
