Introducing the All-New WinterFest Wonderland Parade!

Lisa Stryker

Director of Communications

Winterfest at Carowinds is already known as one of the area’s most sought-after immersive holiday celebrations as the park is completely transformed for the season. This year brings an even more spectacular experience with the debut of the larger-than-life WinterFest Wonderland Parade, a Christmas parade brimming with dazzling displays, exciting performances, and extravagantly decorated holiday floats.

The lavish floats for this one-of-a-kind parade are being custom designed and built by Kern Studios, the same family business that's been creating world-famous Mardi Gras floats for decades.

To add to the holiday delight, all our WinterFest show performers will come together for an over-the-top parade performance you won't want to miss. The Wonderland Parade will bring holiday cheer to WinterFest nightly, capping each evening with wonder and joy. And, of course, an appearance by Santa Claus himself. 

"The WinterFest Wonderland Parade will entertain our guests in a very special way," said Brent Barr, corporate vice president of entertainment for Cedar Fair. "This is an over-the-top production that comes right to you on the midway. It's absolutely the perfect complement to a magical evening at WinterFest."

Barr said that during idea development he and his team focused on finding a way to allow guests to really get close to the show, to feel a part of the experience. That's when the magic happens.

"As a new idea like the WinterFest Wonderland Parade comes to life, my favorite thing to do is go out onto the midways and see parents watching their children just become enchanted," he said. "That's when I know we've done the job right. And we're really proud of this parade. It's truly a 'statement piece' for WinterFest."  

Experience the parade for yourself at WinterFest nightly on select dates Nov. 24 - December 31, 2019.
