It’s getting cold outside! Well, for Southern California standards it is, and it’s about to get colder! Winter is coming to the OC with an all-new holiday wonder, Winter Fest. Unfolding over the OC Fair & Event Center December 18January 3, a magical and whimsical getaway will be unveiled  that features unlimited ice tubing, the world’s largest walk-through ornament, festive entertainment, ice skating, VIP rink-side cabanas, live reindeer, a nightly Christmas tree lighting ceremony with snowfall, seasonal-themed eateries, libations, a carnival and much more.

Entertainment for Winter Fest begins each morning with a snow-capped opening moment led by resident master magician, Jimmy H.  The Chainsaw Chicks will also be here at Winter Fest, carving out fantastic ice sculptures while captivating the crowd with their unbridled charm. Local bands, strolling carolers, and performances by community organizations from around Orange County bring tons of live entertainment to Winter Fest.

The Winter Fest Promenade will be bustling with all of the sights and sounds of winter and with a variety of holiday food and beverage options. A 30-foot Christmas tree stands at the end of the Winter Fest Promenade, where guests will gather nightly at 5:30 p.m. for a heartwarming tree lighting ceremony complete with snowfall. Near the Christmas tree are two of Santa’s reindeer, available for viewing and feeding.

The  Mistletoe Lounge is a hot spot at Winter Fest, that you will surely find me at! Offering holiday-themed cocktails, international craft beers, and comfortable seating amid the holiday décor and entertainment of the Winter Fest Promenade. The Slippery Slope Ski Lodge (known as Baja Blues Restaurant during the OC Fair) is another exciting Winter Fest destination. The family-friendly eatery will capture a ski-lodge vibe with holiday-themed cuisine and drinks, mountain décor, nightly live entertainment, and staff decked out in ski gear.

Chill is transforming over two million pounds of sparkling, colorful ice into larger-than-life, hand-carved ice sculptures in the 13,000 square-foot Igloo called The Ice Kingdom which is located inside the Queen Mary’s Dome, formerly home to the legendary Spruce Goose. The Ice Kingdom is featuring a California holiday theme complete with breaking waves, dancing dolphins and a Surfing Santa.

These hand carved wonders are created by an international team of expert ice sculptures from Harbin, China and enhanced with LED lighting to create a visually awing experience like no other. The Ice Kingdom is kept at a frosty nine degrees Fahrenheit to preserve the ice and guests will receive parkas to help protect against the frozen temperatures.

If that’s not thrilling enough for you, then try ice tubing! With six lanes of glistening ice slides standing two stories tall and 100-feet long in front of the Ice Kingdom, you are in for a wild ride down the ice. Or try  ice skating under the stars on the 6,500 square-foot outdoor ice skating rink with a view of the picturesque Queen Mary.
