Westchester’s Winter Wonderland

Posted by editor on 12/16/15

While the spring weather has been beautiful, if you’ve been yearning for the cold and festive feeling that comes with the holiday season, there are plenty of things around Westchester to help get you in the holiday spirit! Winter Wonderland is an eventful and fun attraction close by to Port Chester that is fun for everyone!

There are several fun attractions for guests of Westchester’s Winter Wonderland to enjoy. With the rink double the size of last year, thanks to the sponsoring of the New York Rangers, there is plenty of room to twirl, skate and zoom around and all paying guests get to enjoy unlimited skating. Winter Wonderland also has rides where you can have fun on the Wonderland Express, or take part in a hay ride over to the dancing trees on the other side of the park.

Other relaxing features of this magical winter event are the Light Show, Candy Cane Lane and Santa Experience. Watch lights illuminate up in all different colors and shapes to the sync of wonderful holiday music. You can also take a nice leisurely stroll around the area, with light up giant candy canes guiding your way, perfect for couples or those looking for a cute date idea. The Santa Experience is one of the most popular attractions where kids can share their list with Santa! Face painting and tattoo stations will be nearby for entertainment while they make their way down the line to meet Santa. Special events will also be held including ice sculpting every Friday, an acrobatics show, juggling and hula hoop! Make sure to visit the website for the special events and special guests schedule.

Winter Wonderland is located at Kensico Dam in Valhalla, less than 20 minutes away from The Castle.
