During our 9am hour, Gayle was live with Santa because you can enjoy a "Winter Wonderland" at FairPlex. It will be 111 Days 'til Christmas when Santa arrives at this year's Los Angeles County Fair in Pomona. Dressed in a summer wardrobe of Hawaiian shirt, red shorts and striped socks, the jolly old elf, will be "on vacation." Children and families will find that he is just one of many special attractions at this year's fair.
Opening Day will feature the official Santa for the Hollywood Santa Parade. (Santa Tim Connaghan) has appeared on Dr. Phil, the Tonight Show, Today Show, Deal or No Deal, the cover of J.C. Penney's Christmas Catalogue and been featured in many news stories including Time Magazine and the Wall Street Journal. Other Santas will preside at the Winter Wonderland on other days. (But don't tell the kids!)
It seems that Santa has traveled to vacation at his favorite seaside resort. But he and everyone are surprised when a friendly winter storm decides to follow him. So the Seaside Resort becomes a "Winter Wonderland." There is 'Snow' everywhere, the pond is frozen and locals are ice skating (It's half the size of a hockey rink!) There is a mountain of fresh snow daily for the children to play in (Over six tons of snow, special crushed ice, is blown in every morning!) And every hour on the hour, children get to dance and play to some of our favorite holiday songs as it snows inside the giant hanger-sized building!
And immediately after the snow stops falling, Santa makes his hourly grand entrance into the Building with his traditional Ho,Ho, Ho's. He circles down the aisles of the building and proceeds to his beach, where he will keep watch over the ice skaters and snow bunnies, and pose for those traditional summer photos!
Winter Wonderland is located in Building #8 at the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds in Pomona.
