Festival of Lights


The all new Festival of Lights with more than 2 million lights, nightly Christmas tree lighting celebration with spectacular fireworks and snowfall and ice skating under the stars on SoCal's largest outdoor ice rink. Winter Fest OC is also packed with over 30 carnival rides, attractions and games, a petting zoo, pony rides, trackless train through the Festival of Lights, interactive model trains, craft-making activities and plenty of Instagram-worthy picture opportunities. Make sure you also don't miss ringing in the New Year not once, but twice, with a special countdown, Orange Ball drop, fireworks spectacular and an unforgettable balloon drop at both 6:00 pm and midnight. Multiple live bands will be playing to commemorate the end of the year, and the start of the a new one. Your ticket includes a fast pass, so you can skip the lines and go down the Snowflake Summit ice tubing slide. Go for the season pass and save over 40% and return as many times as you would like over the 18-day run of SoCal's favorite winter experience.
