Have you been to LEGOLAND California during the holidays?
If not, you should!
Earlier this month, my daughter Tori and I put on our winter jackets, scarves, and gloves and headed to LEGOLAND California for their annual tree lighting ceremony. Hilary Duff was the evening’s guest of honor, and launched the spectacular event. Now through January 1st head on to LEGOLAND for some holiday fun!
My daughter grew up watching Lizzie Mcguire, and was thrilled to see her childhood icon up close at the ceremony. Hillary Duff, is popularly known as a star on the critically-acclaimed and buzzy TV Land series “Younger.” She spent the day enjoying all the attractions at the park with her son and family before heading to the giant LEGO Christmas tree for the evening’s festivities.
Disclosure: Thank you LEGOLAND California for inviting me to your annual tree lighting ceremony. All opinions are my own.
Prior to Duff pulling the switch that turned on more than 11,000 LED lights on the 30-foot tall Christmas tree, she was presented with a LEGO castle ornament as an invitation to return in the spring when the new LEGOLAND Castle Hotel is set to open!
At the ceremony, LEGOLAND California Resort donated $10,000 on Duff’s behalf to Baby2Baby, which provides low-income children ages 0-12 years with diapers, clothing and other basic necessities. By distributing to non-profit partner organizations including homeless and domestic violence shelters, Head Start programs, foster care programs and children’s hospitals, Baby2Baby will serve more than 150,000 children in Los Angeles this year and tens of thousands more across the country through the Baby2Baby National Network.
“I feel so fortunate to work with such an amazing group of people who really focus on mothers, children and babies tirelessly to give them the basic necessities that everyone deserves,” said Duff.
I love all the holiday decorations throughout the park!
