Winterfest Returns to Yucaipa this Saturday with Santa, Snow and A Whole Lot More
With Saturday’s predicted high of 46 degrees – and a low of 31 degrees – it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in Yucaipa. To celebrate the coming December holiday the city is now putting the final touches on its preparations for the annual Winterfest celebration scheduled for this Saturday, Nov. 30 from 3 to 9 p.m.
The annual event is a family-centered event that features photos with Santa and a free candy cane (from 3:00 to 5:15 p.m. and from 6:15 to 9:00 p.m. on Yucaipa Blvd.), the annual tree lighting (beginning at 5:55 p.m. at the California Street Roundabout), yuletide carolers and live holiday music, a Kids Zone – featuring jumpers, letters to Santa, making reindeer food, and more – and for adults aged 21 years and above a Beer Garden.
The festivities will also include a favorite holiday movie, The Grinch (2018) beginning at 7:00 p.m. on Yucaipa Blvd, west of the California St. roundabout. Food and drink vendors will also be on hand to tempt your tummy and merchandise vendors will be offering everything from antiques to clothing, books and more.
Perhaps the most fun will be had at next to the Yucaipa Performing Arts Center where 40 tons of snow will be dropped for people of all ages to enjoy! Specialty lanes will be made for individuals to slide down the snow on sleds.
With all that Winterfest has to offer you and your family will want to be part of this very special kickoff to the Christmas season. For additional information and answers to all your questions, contact the city of Yucaipa at: 909-797-2489.
