Back at Cal Expo in Sacramento, that lantern festival features all new designs in "Magic of the Seasons" with beautifully-lit experiences representing Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. An ice rink open to the public is used several times each day for a spectacular Chinese acrobatic / ice skating show, free with admission. Billed as the largest lantern festival outside China, the Global Winter Wonderland returns for it 5th year in the United States (and fourth season in California,) featuring more than 70 large-scale light displays, millions of LEDs, 100 tons of steel and 200,000 feet of silk and countless recycled bottles, CDs and other objects. You can buy an annual pass to go back and be entertained time after time. The skating shows are held daily.
Global Winter Wonderland includes large inflatable scenes that illuminate from within at night. Guests wander the fairgrounds filled with food kiosks, vendors selling holiday gifts, a midway with carnival rides and entertainment.
