Legoland California Holiday Snow Days and Winter Nights 2013 1

From the Press Release:

Snow, snow, and more snow! LEGOLAND® California Resort is gearing up for the biggest snow fall in San Diego for its holiday celebration, Holiday Snow Days and Winter Nights. The winter celebration begins Nov. 29 with more than 50 tons of real snow, festive treats, holiday entertainment and family fun activities.

During Holiday Snow Days and Winter Nights, the Park’s Fun Town transforms into a winter wonderland where families throw snowballs at LEGO themed targets and build snowmen using LEGO® accessories.  New this year, children can enjoy their first snow-tubing experience gliding down 7-foot tall snow-covered tube runs! Park guests can also sing along with holiday entertainment including live music featuring LEGO Friends Live, Jingle Jammers, the Big Test Holiday show and the Holiday Character Dance Party!  Holiday Snow Days continue with the lighting of the world’s largest LEGO Christmas tree and concludes with San Diego’s biggest Kids’ New Year’s Eve Party.

The 30-foot tall Christmas tree is created out of more than 245,000 forest green DUPLO® bricks and is adorned with more than 400 LEGO ornaments. A surprise celebrity guest will pull the switch that lights the tree during the annual tree lighting ceremony on Dec. 2. and one lucky child selected through LEGOLAND California Resort’s Facebook Page will light the LEGO Christmas tree nightly Dec. 1 through Dec. 24.

Fireworks spark each night Dec. 26 through Dec. 30 at 7 p.m. The best view to see the festive fireworks display is in the Park’s Fun Town.  And don’t miss a stroll through Miniland U.S.A which is decorated for the season with LEGO holiday scenes including Santa arriving on top of the White House in Washington, D.C.

LEGOLAND California Resort is featuring holiday treats including Bavarian Bratwursts, buttery mash potatoes, sweet potato fries, churros, warm spiced apple cider, and holiday cookies. All delicious treats are available for purchase throughout the celebration.

SEA LIFE® Aquarium joins in the holiday fun with an underwater LEGO Christmas tree, holiday-themed Daily Dive Show and a ‘green’ crafting event.  The LEGOLAND Hotel also is getting in the holiday spirit with nightly entertainment, holiday- themed LEGO® daily model build contests and holiday décor exclusive to Hotel guests.

Kids’ New Year’s Eve is the biggest annual family-friendly party allowing kids to ring in 2014 without missing their bedtime! Like the famous ball dropping in Times Square, Kids’ New Year’s Eve rocks the night with special musical performances from Grammy nominated musical artists, a huge LEGO brick dropping 22-feet into the air and a spectacular fireworks display at 6 p.m.

LEGOLAND California is extending its Park hours for the winter holiday during these dates: Nov. 29, 30, Dec. 7, 14,21,22,23, and 26-31. LEGOLAND California Resort is offering a gift for holiday guests.
