Winter Fest OC, Southern California’s largest winter experience, will host special New Year’s Eve celebrations, not once, but twice, with a special countdown Orange Ball drop, fireworks, and an unforgettable 3,000-balloon drop at both 6:00 p.m. and midnight. A Journey Tribute Band, Katy Perry, and P!NK cover bands will keep the party rockin’ until the turn of the new year. Live entertainment also includes PJ Mask character shows, magic from Jimmy H, ballroom dancing, storytelling, and more.

Enjoy traditional English foods such as Shepherd’s Pie, Fish and Chips, and Scotch Eggs while enjoying The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party experience. Visit Fezziwig’s Warehouse to enjoy music, play games, or learn how to ballroom dance.
