California’s Great America Announces WinterFest for 2016

California’s Great America has announced their plans for the winter 2016 season, most notably including WinterFest, a five-week winter celebration that is free for gold and platinum pass holders.

The park will be magically transformed into a winter wonderland during WinterFest where guests can skate in front of the iconic Carousel Columbia, admire magnificent displays of lights and décor, view spectacular live holiday shows, experience 18 rides and attractions, see Santa’s workshop and Mrs. Claus’ kitchen, and enjoy scrumptious holiday fare at numerous food locations.



The winter scene will be dominated by one of the Bay Area’s tallest Christmas trees adorned with hundreds of twinkling lights accompanied by giant toy soldiers greeting guests.

WinterFest will also feature a nightly tree lighting ceremony, over 100 decorated trees, a reindeer petting station, three new shows, and more.
