Winter Wonderland Weekend

We hope you enjoyed the Splashtastic weekend! We definitely got cooled off splashing around with Yogi. It looks like the weather is about to get up to triple-digits this summer, so we’ve got the perfect event planned this weekend for you all!


This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, we will be hosting our Winter Wonderland Weekend, complete with a visit from Santa! We will be caroling around the park, and make sure to bring your holiday decorations to decorate your site for the decorating contest. We’ll have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners! Even Yogi could use a little help decorating our tree.


As usual, we’ll start Friday off with Yogi Bear and cartoons at Bluebonnet Hall. After cartoons, we want to make sure you get to spend some quality time with your family, so we’ve put together our Family Game afternoon to keep you guys entertained together. At 4:30 PM, we’ll start decorating for the Winter Wonderland Weekend ahead of us! You can’t have a Winter Wonderland Weekend without an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party; so stop by Bluebonnet Hall at 6:30 PM to show yours off! Our favorite part of the holiday season is hearing Christmas Stories by the fire pit with Boo Boo. We’ll be roasting s’mores and making hot dogs, so be sure to purchase what you need at the Ranger station! Or, come join us at 8:45 PM for our Dive in Christmas Movie at the Ol’Swimming Hole!


We like to start Saturday’s off with a little exercise to get our blood flowing, so meet us bright and early at the Flag Pole around 9:30 for Family Exercise with Boo Boo. Stick around afterwards for a Christmas Wagon Ride and parade! Rides your bikes or stay on the wagon and sing carols to show off your Christmas spirit! After the parade, come help us make Christmas tree decorations in Bluebonnet Hall! We’ll be putting them on the tree with Boo Boo, and then we’ll be getting ready for the Candy Cane Race! If you’re interested in racing, meet us at the Playground at 4:30 PM! If you don’t want to run then hang out until 5:30 when we begin Candy Cane Bingo, where all you have to bring is a Candy Cane, or a 1.00, for the Bingo Card. Later, we’ll have pictures with Santa Clause and more caroling around the bon fire. For those of you adults who need a little time to relax after such a fun day, we’ve got a Wine Tasting and music at the snack shack for you. It’s your vacation too! Our feature movie at Jellysotne Theater will start at 8:45 PM.


We hate to say good-bye to winter, especially in Texas, but we send it off right on Sunday, starting off with morning exercises with Yogi! We’ll have one more fun wagon ride, followed by a Christmas Scavenger Hunt. Meet us at the Ranger Station if you think you can win! We’ll have Family Pool Games at 5:30 PM, and one last weekend movie at Jellystone Theater at 8:30 PM. Don’t forget to check and see if you won the site-decorating contest Sunday morning!
