Pennypickle's Winter Wonderland in Temecula

A visit to Temecula, recognzied as Southern California's wine country destination and known for Pechanga Casino Resort, is a great escape for adults, especially when someone is willing to watch the kids. Read below about Dec. 17 & 18 Polar Express where adults can drop the kids off at Pennypickle's Workshop and go explore.

The museum for children is wacky, fun, and incredibly well thought out. It has won awards that include the Nickelodeon Parents' Choice.

One of its most fun events of the year takes to the streets outside the home & workshop of the wacky, mysterious Professor Phineas T. Pennypickle in Old Town Temecula. Winter Wonderland is a day-long festival with real snow filling the streets, holiday music, twinkling lights, and some games that are great! Mess around in the Marshmallow Zone, eat s'mores and drink hot chocolate, entertain yourself in the Craft and Game Zones, let the kids shop for mom and dad in Beaker's Secret Store, start your Christmas shopping at Pennypickles, and play in the snow!!!

Time: Friday, December 10, 2010 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. You can park for free in the new parking structure on Mercedes St., next to the Civic Center, and right up the street from Pennypickle's Workshop.
