LEGOLAND California Celebrates 20th LEGO Tree Lighting Ceremony

And the countdown begins for Christmas!

Last week, Josh Peck and starof Hallmark Channel’s ‘Countdown to Christmas’ new original movie, “Inventing the Christmas Prince, helped Santa pull the switch to light the LEGO Christmas tree during the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony officially kicking off Holidays at LEGOLAND California!

This year marks LEGOLAND’S 20th LEGO tree lighting anniversary and were thrilled to launch the season with the family!

Disclosure: Thank you LEGOLAND California for hosting us. All opinions are my own.

At the ceremony, LEGOLAND California Resort donated $10,000 on Peck’s behalf to MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach.

Hallmark Channel donated $10,000 on Mowry-Housley’s behalf to Make-A-Wish. Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital is a non-profit, pediatric and maternity teaching hospital in Long Beach that treats more than 8,000 children each year, delivers more than 5,500 babies and has become a regional pediatric destination for more than 84,000 children who need specialized care in outpatient specialty and satellite centers. Make-A-Wish is a non-profit organization that grants life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. A wish can be that spark that helps these children believe that anything is possible and gives them strength to fight harder against their illnesses. LEGOLAND and Mowry-Housley have both been longtime supporters of Make-A-Wish

We LOVE LEGOLAND this time of the year. There is just so much to do!

  • Your favorite holiday characters, Santa and the Toy Soldier, are back along with the Gingerbread Man! They’re ready for holiday hugs, pictures, and selfies.
  • Head over to Fun Town where there’s a 30-foot, fully decorated, LEGO® Christmas tree with over 400 LEGO ornaments. And as the day winds down, the tree gets a-twinklin to holiday tunes at the Holiday Light Show featuring falling “snow”. 
  • Need more pictures? Hop on a sleigh with a life-size LEGO Santa that’s pulled by his trusted reindeer. Along with the holiday fun, food and live music, there are more than 60 rides, shows and attractions at LEGOLAND California Resort. 
  • Check out our delightfully dazzling holiday shows, Santa approved of course, throughout the park all season long! Also, why not try some holly jolly themed food and drinks too?
  • Combine the two for an unforgettable holiday experience!
  • There is so much to do, you’ll want to spend the night at one of the two LEGOLAND Hotels located right at the main entrance. 

What a joyful way to enjoy the holiday season! We enjoyed the park rides, holiday decorations, entertainment, and created amazing memories with the family. You should too! Get your tickets here.

Happy Holidays!
