Fun Town at Legoland California Resort takes on a winter wonderland ambiance as snow falls and lights twinkle merrily on the land’s buildings, and on the park’s 30-foot-tall Christmas tree.

Constructed with more than 245,000 forest green Duplo bricks, the centerpiece tree boasts 400+ Lego ornaments and 11,000 LED lights, which dance to holiday tunes during the nightly “Holiday Light Show.”

Fun Town is also the place to find life-size Lego models of Santa and his reindeer, the perfect spot for a family photo or backdrop for this year’s holiday cards.

The merry-making continues with costumed characters Lego Santa, Lego Toy Soldier, and Lego Gingerbread Man, each of whom are on hand to meet visitors and pose for photographs.
