Many years ago, before we had kids, Brian and I took our pretend kids (Joy and Chloe) to something called Winterfest at Carowinds.
OH MY GOODNESS LOOK AT THOSE BABIES!!!! I can’t even. I feel old now.
If I had to guess, this would be somewhere around 2004 or 2005.
It was simply magical. Fake snow – because it’s Charlotte and we don’t really have snow, ever. Carolers. Turkey legs. Lights. Trees. Apple Cider.
I could have stayed forever.
And just like that – Winterfest at Carowinds went away! We’ve talked for years about those memories and how much fun we had.
Now, Carowinds has brought Winterfest BACK! What a perfect way to spend the #funfriday before Christmas.
It’s even better than before – a grand tree lighting every single night, tons of Christmas shows, holiday dinners in Harmony Hall, a live Nativity with real animals (38 of them, actually) you can pet, an ice skating rink, Charlie Brown Christmas Town and more!
Guys. We are having a blast!!! The shows are really catching me by surprise. They are fantastic!!! Especially the old radio show in Harmony Hall!
Winterfest 2017 will continue through next week. But don’t worry, they’re already making plans for 2018. Put this tradition on your calendar for sure. And if you have a season pass, Winterfest admission is automatically included. YAY to the YAYY!
