This past Friday was opening night and media night for the all new WinterFest OC at the Orange County Fairgrounds. We were invited out to check out the holiday fun and we had Scott and Buffy attend for us and send us this great report.

Arriving in the late afternoon at the OC Fairgrounds it's amazing seeing more places transformed for the holidays.
There's even a Carnival, we'll get back to that in a bit.
Let's head into WinterFest.
Great Red Balls of Fire!!
Indoor Ice Skating with penguin helpers for those of us who don't know how to skate.
Great holiday fun
What holiday event would be complete without Reindeer? They are beefing up for their epic journey this Thursday night.
Also popular at holiday events, tubing on ice!!! (it's a lot of fun)
Nice show area set up
Ooooooh .... Aaaaaah ...
Carolers in front of the Hangar
Lots and lots of food!!!
Snow!!! And Candy Cane Rice Bowls? =)
Inside, a fantastic Christmas village and model trains.
This really makes me miss our Christmas Village. Maybe this week I'll share some pics of ours if you'd like to see it.
Pepsi? Blech. ;)
Coca Cola Bear (probably not)
The Ice Slide!!!
Maybe next year they'll have a loop. ;)
Let's check out the rides!!
Be sure to bundle up if you are attending, it's been quite chilly the past few nights here in Southern California.
Thanks again to WinterFest for having us out and to Scott and Buffy for attending for us. So glad you had fun.
