Year-Round Fun at Legoland California

Summer Block Party is just one of the many highlights for 2023 at Legoland California. Later this year, Legoland California will be a hub of seasonal events. Guests can enjoy fireworks on the 4th of July during “Red, White, & BOOM!,” Halloween fun during “Brick-or-Treat” on Saturdays in October, and a character greeting with Lego Santa during Holidays at Legoland in November and December.

Back in March, the park unveiled the new Lego city of San Diego. Fans voted for the display’s landmarks to include in the display. Petco Park and the San Diego County Fair were among the winners.

Legoland California, along with its sister parks in New York and Florida, also recently became Certified Autism Centers. The parks partnered with the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards to undergo staff training for this sensory-friendly distinction.
