Ring in the New Year at Winter Fest OC

Winter Fest OC, Southern California’s largest winter experience, invites you to ring in the New Year not once, but twice, with a special countdown, fireworks, and an unforgettable 3,000-balloon-drop at 6pm and midnight. The celebration begins early with not-to-miss meet-and-greets with PAW Patrol characters Marshall and Chase from 2:30pm to 9:00pm.

Families are also invited to commemorate El Día de los Reyes, or Three Kings’ Day on January 6, where Winter Fest will host a traditional parade of three kings and a live camel at 5:30pm. Festive food, live entertainment, and camel viewing will take place all day to mark the cherished holiday.

All the fun of Winter Fest continues through January 7, with OC’s largest snow play & slide area with real snow blown in daily, plus unlimited tubing down Snowflake Summit’s 150-foot mountain of ice, bounce houses and slides, a petting zoo, and a stroll-through Festival of Lights display with 3 new themes and a 100’ animated tunnel for the perfect Instagram pictures!

Make sure to satisfy your sweet tooth with all-new food and beverage options, including hot chocolate, chocolate chip cookies, and a signature Winter Fest dessert created by the infamous Afters Ice Cream. “The Winter Fest” dessert features frozen hot cocoa ice cream with a crushed Oreo topping, all enclosed in a cinnamon sugar sweet bun. Hot on the outside but cold on the inside, it’s the perfect combination for the holiday season!

Winter Fest OC tickets are available online starting at only $10. Additional attractions with a fee include ice skating under the stars on OC’s largest outdoor rink, and Candy Cane carnival with more than 30 rides, attractions and games.
