“This is Canada’s Wonderland like you’ve never seen it before,” said Norm Pirtovshek, general manager. “WinterFest will be one of the country’s most spectacular winter events where friends and families can create memories and new traditions during the holiday season.”

Activities during the festival include ice skating on Snow Flake Lake in front of Wonder Mountain, a nightly tree-lighting ceremony, live holiday shows, strolling performers, select rides, and interactive offerings like cookie decorating with Mrs. Claus, writing letters to Santa at the North Pole Post Office, and crafting take-home keepsakes at Sally’s Christmas Crafts.

WinterFest will be divided into eight worlds: Tinsel Town, the North Pole, Elf Village, Charlie Brown’s Christmas Town, Candy Cane Lane, International Street, Season of Lights and the Christmas Market.
