How the Grinch Stole Christmas Comes to Life at This Event


Annual Winter Wonderland Event

The storybook park will be trimmed with festive holiday and Grinch-inspired d├ęcor. Starting at dusk each night, a dazzling display of lights will light up the park. A flurry of snow will fall nightly at 7 p.m. near the Mother Goose Stage, and families can step inside a giant snow globe. Children of all ages will enjoy making Grinch-themed hands-on activities, including making a Grinch face mask and a Grinch heart, which grows three sizes at the end of the classic book. Victorian carolers will stroll through the park, and vendors will be on-site selling gifts and crafts.
