The gates to one of this year's most anticipated Christmas events just opened, and a festive paradise is awaiting you on the other side. Wrap yourself in your coziest scarf and skip your way into this fantastical winter extravaganza, filled with more magic than the North Pole itself. Bursting with twinkling lights, candied pathways, and nostalgic songs, this dazzling event will give you major Christmas spirit. Canada's Wonderland WinterFest is now open, and you need to see it.

For the first time ever, Canada's Wonderland has transformed into a glittering Christmas village for guests to explore.

The theme park is almost unrecognizable beneath mounds of sparkling lights, strings of garland, and larger-than-life decor.

WinterFest officially opened on November 22, inviting guests into its enchanting never-before-seen wonderland.

Upon entering the park, you'll feel like a child on Christmas morning. An array of golden lights twinkle at you from every corner, storefronts are frosted with wreaths and ornaments, and glimmering trees greet you at every turn.

A massive, glassy ice rink glows beneath Wonder Mountain, inviting skaters to drift along to their favourite Christmas songs. 

The mountain waterfall has been replaced by a stream of sparkling lights, adding to the majesty of the scene.

Souvenir stores have been transformed into festive emporiums selling all things Christmas. 

Hot chocolate stands are sprinkled throughout the park, so you'll always have something to warm you up.

One of the most memorable attractions is Candy Cane Lane, a glittering trail filled with larger-than-life bonbon statues.

You can follow this sweet path to a charming carousel and cozy hut where you can write a letter to Santa.

As you wander through the splendour, your ears will be filled with tunes from live carolers and performers. 

With endless photo ops and incredible sights, you'll want to spend all evening in this magical winter paradise.

Warm-up with some of the festive food and treats available. You can indulge in an entire turkey dinner, Christmas funnel cakes, and so much more.

From cookie decorating to a stunning tree lighting ceremony, you'll be filled with Christmas cheer for days even after you leave.

Don't leave without strolling through the Christmas Market, where you can get your mittens on all sorts of local goodies and stocking stuffers.

Take an adventure into this incredible winter world this year, and experience this brand new Christmas festival.
