It’s almost that time of year again! Canada’s Wonderland is transforming into a holiday fairytale this November for its annual WinterFest event. Tickets are officially on sale for this year’s festival and from the sounds of it, we’re in for a real treat this holiday season.

In addition to hundreds of twinkling trees and millions of spectacular lights strung throughout the amusement park, this season’s WinterFest will feature ice-skating on Snow Flake Lake, tons of live shows and entertainment, two 50-foot Christmas trees, and carolers singing from old fashioned cable car trolleys.

Every night of the festival will have a tree lighting ceremony, so you’ll be guaranteed to see the tall trees light up before your eyes when you visit. You’ll feel as if you’re in a 1950s holiday postcard when The Mistletones trio sings your favourite holiday songs.

The event will feature adorable interactive displays of Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen and The North Pole Post Office with activities for kids to participate in, but we’d be lying if we said we didn’t want to decorate cookies and write letters to Santa too.

And it wouldn’t be a Canada’s Wonderland festival without delicious food and amusement park rides. Over a dozen rides will be open throughout WinterFest and you’ll be spoiled for choice with the special menu, which features savory mains, delicious desserts, and irresistible snacks.  Plus, you’ll be able to warm up with a cup of mulled cider, gourmet hot chocolate, and other delightful drinks.

The WinterFest Christmas Market will also be returning this year, so you’ll be going home with artisan gifts, decor, and treats for you and your loved ones.

The tickets range in price depending on the size of your group and the activities you plan to do — ice skating, for example, is an extra $5 per 30-minute session. You can get all the details here.

We may be barely into October but we’re chomping at the bit to bust out our Christmas sweaters. Let the countdown begin!
