LEGOLAND! Holiday Snow Days & Winter Nights are Here Through January 3rd! #LegolandCA

LEGOLAND! Holiday Snow Days & Winter Nights

By Penny from On the Go OC!

*We received media tickets to attend the Holiday Snow Days at Legoland*

It was a Snow Day kind of day today! We packed up some jackets and headed south to Legoland in Carlsbad.

We were able to cover Holiday Snow Days for Erin and experience all the fun that LEGOLAND CA is bringing to winter on sunny SoCal!

Holiday-Snow-Days-Legoland

What I love the most about Legoland is that my whole family can enjoy everything from food to rides.

The Holidays bring out all the festivities. Our top 5 faves per my 8 year old:

Snow-Play-Snow-Man-Legoland-Carlsbad

* Snow Play* – The kids loved to play in the snow with their friends. There was plenty of room to celebrate the winter fun with Snow Man building, and he was a huge one! Throwing snow balls at a festive wall was also a lot of fun. They were able to sled as much as they wanted to. There was plenty of room to play for the kids and adults and there was also a snow ball launching area to aim at targets. So much fun for everyone to play with snow in the warm sun!

Heartlake-City-Legoland

* HeartLake City*– Always a favorite to visit. The Holiday show was just amazing. The kids sang along and danced while the Lego Friends came together in a special Winter treat of song and dance and of course friendship!

* Christmas Tree Lighting and Music* – Jenna Elfman did a wonderful job and the live music was magical. The lighting was beautiful and was accompanied with fireworks and snowfall! Everyone really loved the surprises that made the tree lighting so perfect.

Legoland-Christmastree-Lighting-Fireworks

* Fireworks* – This was a pleasant surprise for everyone! The winter night sky was lit up with fireworks to celebrate the Tree lighting ceremony! It was the perfect end to the night!

Lego-Santa

* Santa and Lego Santa* – Did you know that Lego Santa is on the grounds!? He is so cute and just adorable. Make sure you catch him and get a hug!

Halloween Fun at Camp Spooky @Knotts #CampSpooky

Halloween Fun at Camp Spooky at Knott’s Berry Farm!

Camp Spooky

The other weekend I was able to treat my good friend and her daughter, who was getting ready to celebrate her 7th birthday, to some Camp Spooky fun! Kids can dress up for this, special occasion, so which will it be? Pirate, witch, Snoopy, or my personal favorite, a cowboy? ;). This is a daytime, non-scare celebration, filled with cheer rather than fear, with halloween themed shows, activities and of course, a costume contest that’s all created with children in mind, ages 3-11. Let’s take a look at some of the spooky fun!

CampSpooky Potion Parlour

Kids of all ages can explore their spooky side at the “Potion Parlour,” which is a fun Kool-Aid mixing station where kids use witches cauldrons to create their special potions, and then pour them into test tubes to create “Friendship Potions” and other fun potions. *A small additional fee is required for this experience.*

CS Potions

Here’s the fun potion that Chey made! It’s her “Power Potion” that she said was a Vampire Potion to keep the vampires away. 😉

Snoopys Costume Parade

Kids can take part in “Snoopy’s Costume Party and Parade” and also visit the Camp Spooky Theatre to view Charlie Brown’s new Halloween show where everyone will be singing and dancing in the aisles to all their favorite Halloween tunes. All participants receive a ribbon like the one Chey got here! Some lucky ghouls and goblins will receive special prizes handed out by the Peanuts Gang too! Look who Snoopy chose in the middle! 😉
