Winter Wonderland to return to Atascadero Friday
–Over 65 tons of snow is on its way to the Central Coast. Winter Wonderland is back for another exciting snow driven event in Downtown Atascadero on Friday, Dec. 13 from 5-9 p.m.
This year there will be an added 15 tons of snow to make for a total of 65 tons, which will offer larger snow pile play areas and will help make way for a massive snow slide built by Kiwanis Club of Atascadero. This year’s snow-themed events also include Joe’s Little Train operated by the Elks Club of Atascadero, two Euro bungee jumps, obstacle course, gladiator joust, bounce houses, face painting, caricature artist, and of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus.
This event also offers shopping from our downtown merchants to 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, the Fine Arts Academy Honors Choir, plus dance performances by Motions Academy of Dance, Fine Arts Academy, and scooter demonstrations by A-Town Park & 805 Board shop.
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. The North Pole entrance for Santa will be on the Jr High side of the building.
Atascadero’s Winter Wonderland 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.
