Carlsbad --  More than 245,000 forest green Lego bricks create a holiday tree at LEGOLAND California. Adorned with nearly 400 LEGO ornaments including new colorful bulbs and 1,000 lights, this LEGO brick tree towers over the main entrance of the 128-acre family theme park in Carlsbad. It can be seen throughout the holiday season during the month of December. Celebrity guests switching the light on the tree have included the esteemed Mr. Santa Claus, and actors such as Drew Seeley from Disney's High School Musical. Along with beautiful Christmas songs sung by such celebs, guests can watch fireworks light up the sky when the tree is turned on. Ideal for all ages, this holiday event welcomes children, adults, and those seeking something completely unique such as a fantasy 30-foot tree made completely of Lego bricks!


The master builders added extra touches as they decorated the U.S. Capitol plaza in Miniland USA with a holiday tree.


LEGOLAND┬« California Tree Lighting Ceremony has changed through years of tree lightings. Growing in its depth and scope, in a previous year foster families were selected as special guests, and Wendy’s Wonderful Kids presented $10,000, the holiday has become more meaningful. More than 150,000 children of the 500,000 in foster care in the U.S. are available for adoption, sometimes waiting more than five years to be matched with a family. Wendy’s Wonderful Kids was created to more quickly move thousands of children out of foster care and into adoptive families.


Each year and holiday season brings a change to Carlsbad's very best attraction (Carlsbad flower fields and its beaches are two others.)  The theme park offers some additional Christmas surprises such as Santa & reindeer made of Lego bricks.
