Carowinds is open a little longer this season so that you can enjoy the holiday spirit with a new tradition by attending WinterFest their winter wonderland with tons of lights and holiday décor. Carowinds is fully transformed and you get to enjoy holiday themed live entertainment, festive food and drinks including a holiday style menu along with Christmas crafts and activities. The BEST part is, it’s included if you are a 2017 Gold Season Pass holder! The fun kicks off on select dates starting November 24th through December 30th.
Here are some of the things you can expect: Midway Merryment will fill the paths of the park with melodious song and dance. Guests will also get to meet some of their favorite holiday characters, including Jack Frost and the Sugar Plum Fairy. I honestly can’t wait to take tons of pictures in this winter wonderland. I just love the holiday season and I know that my family will enjoy this new experience that I’m sure will turn into a holiday tradition for us.
There will also be Christmas Crafts & Activities for all ages to enjoy! I can’t wait to decorate ornaments to hang on our Christmas tree. How would you like a chance to feed Santa’s Reindeer, write letters to Santa or bake cookies with Mrs. Claus? You’ll have an opportunity to do that! I’m excited about ice skating on snowflake lake. I’ve never been ice skating but, I know how to roller blade and roller skate. Maybe I’ll catch on quickly! It’s always been a goal of mine to go ice skating and now I’ll get the chance.
If you enjoy live entertainment there will be Holiday themed LIVE shows you can enjoy with your family. It’s full of Christmas musicals and a nightly lighting of the 70 ft. tall Christmas Tree. I’m sure it will be an amazing experience for all to see. I’m 5.2” and I can’t imagine standing next to a 70 ft. tree. I can’t wait to do it and snap a pic for you to see how tiny I’ll be next to that tall tree. This is a great new holiday tradition for Carowinds to start.
The Peanuts gang will be in attendance. Just head over to Charlie Brown’s Christmas Tree Lot in Planet Snoopy and walk the lot and meet Linus and Charlie Brown from the PEANUTS gang. It will be a fun experience and who doesn’t love Charlie Brown and his gang! Head over to the Carowinds website for additional information about WinterFest and pricing information if you aren’t a 2017 Gold Season Pass Holder. Tickets are reasonably priced for all the fun and activities included.
Lastly, I know I mentioned a holiday themed menu but let me give you specifics. You know I’m not going to leave out the food! You can get smoked Turkey and carved ham along with homemade hot chocolate. I can’t wait to try the chocolate peppermint funnel cake, gingerbread funnel cake with eggnog icing, wings with spicy cranberry sauce or the Christmas tree pizza! I just mentioned a few. There’s more holiday food at WinterFest to enjoy. Can you tell I’m all about the sweets! Photo Credit: Carowinds
