OC Parks invites you to kick off the holiday season at Carbon Canyon Regional Park with Reindeer in the Redwoods, a holiday event in Orange County’s only Redwood Grove! Complete the half-mile walk to the Redwood Grove and be rewarded with a Winter Wonderland, complete with Santa and live reindeer! There will also be holiday gnomes hidden along the way, so be sure to keep an eye out.
This free, family event will include holiday crafts, face painters and cookie decorating. You will even be serenaded by a quartet of carolers!
Gather your family and friends, pick out your holiday outfits and get your cameras ready for a unique, one-of-a-kind photo opportunity!
