Fairy Winterland Celebration

Through Dec. 21, 12-7 p.m. and Through Dec. 23, 12-7 p.m.
510-452-2259
Fairy Winterland Celebration
Children’s Fairyland (699 Bellevue Ave., Oakland) is already an Oakland entertainment classic. But during the holidays, its programming transforms to involve all the seasonal classics, too. In a seamless convergence of all things cute, festive, and joy-inducing, the children’s theme park will reinvent itself as Fairy Winter Wonderland from December 5 through 21. The packed programming includes daily visits from Santa Claus, as well as a tour of the Festival of Lights every evening from the man himself. Each day will also feature a different guest performer providing some holiday cheer; attractions include a mini performance of The Nutcracker by the Oakland Ballet Company and The Puppet Company, a show by The Tap Dancing Christmas Trees (pretty self-explanatory), and a number of different magicians and storytellers. Holiday characters will also be roaming the park ready for photos and complimentary treats, and cider and hot cocoa will be on hand. Everyone is welcome and Fairyland promises that all celebrations are non-denominational. You might have trouble getting your kids to go home with you, however. $8
