Snow, Santa, & Song.

While San Diego might remain warm and sunny through the winter, there will be no shortage of holiday cheer complete with caroling, snowfall, and festive fun. California Center for the Arts, Escondido is bringing their Winter Wonderland Festival to life once again on December 1st. The memorable event has become a tradition for many North County families. Beginning at 3:00 pm, you and your family can enjoy the many fun activities they have planned including visiting with Santa’s reindeer and the man of the hour himself, Santa. The exciting meet and greets allow for an up-close opportunity to enjoy some holiday magic, make a final wish for the perfect gift, and commemorate the occasion with photos.

California Center for the Arts is an organization dedicated to bringing people together to create and appreciate the arts. As supporters of the performing arts, the event will also feature local community groups including choirs and hula dancers. Additionally, the group’s Education team will be offering activities such as cookie decorating, holiday face painting and the opportunity to create post cards with warm holiday wishes for our troops.

Of course, a winter wonderland is never complete without some real snow. Snowman building and light-hearted snowball fights are encouraged. Once you finish playing, you can warm up with fresh-baked goodies. This year’s event will also be featuring a holiday light show that pairs beautiful lighting synched with classic holiday tunes that you and your family can sing along to.
