The OC kickstarts the snow machines once again for its annual Winter Fest, a gargantuan gathering of families romping through a flurry of festivities, including a nightly Christmas Tree lighting and parade, replete with fireworks and beautiful blizzards. Kids and parents can race down SoCal’s largest Ice Tubing Slide, romp through the Candy Cane Carnival, and take a selfie with the Big Red One and try to convince him that you really do deserve the sinister iPhone X. There’s also the Holiday Ferris Wheel, Tilt-a- Whirl, Zipper, a petting zoo, and a snowboard simulator— with a slew of Winter Bounce Houses for your sugar-amped tots. Adults can kick it in to the Mistletoe Lounge and enjoy international craft beers, the famous Winter Fest hot chocolate, and seek solace from the melee in holiday-themed cocktails. In fact, make it a double.
