–Winter Wonderland is back for another exciting snow driven event in downtown Atascadero on Friday, Dec. 8 from 5-9 p.m. This is the only event in the county that offers over 53 tons of snow.

Atascadero’s Sunken Gardens and the entire downtown will be transformed into a magical winter snow globe for all ages to enjoy. This year’s snow-themed events include a massive snow slide built by the local Kiwanis Club, two snow play areas, Joe’s Little Train sponsored by the Elks Club, a rock climbing wall, bounce houses and of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus.WinterWonderland2015_7177

If you are looking to check off a couple of items from your holiday shopping list, this event offers shopping with many downtown merchants plus over 50 craft and food vendors. Visitors can experience musical entertainment at Historic City Hall by the Atascadero Elementary and High School Show & Concert Choirs; plus dance entertainment by the Fine Arts Academy Dance class by Yvonne Davis.

It has been rumored that Santa & Mrs. Claus will make an appearance at the massive snow slide area and Santa may even be the first to ride a sled down the slide, kicking off this fabulous event. If you miss Santa & Mrs. Claus at the snow slide, you can catch them at Historic City Hall until 9 p.m.

Atascadero’s Winter Wonderland is a must-do event this season. The event is free to come and enjoy, but don’t forget to bring along your wallet for holiday shopping, great food and all of the extra fun that abounds.
