California's Great America to Celebrate Seasons of Fun Throughout 2020

California's Great America has already announced a massive transformation of their water park into South Bay Shores for Summer 2020, but the park has now announced more special events and festivals to fill the whole year with fun.

As with several other Cedar Fair parks, these limited time special events are large scale productions that are meant to entice visitors to the park before they miss out.  California's Great America has packed their year with a ton of limited run events, giving something new to explore each visit.

Starting off this Spring, the park will hold Spring Fiesta, a brand new event that honors Hispanic culture.  From April 25-26, May 2-3 and May 9-10 the park's Hometown Square will transform into La Plaza, filled with authentic food and drink, dance and live entertainment.

Also in May the park's greatly transformed South Bay Shores water park will open to guests for the first time.

Monster Jam: Thunder Alley will also roar its way into California's Great America starting June 20th and running until July 12th.  The popular event was at three Cedar Fair parks last year, and will be traveling to three new parks in 2020.  Experiences at the event include riding in a real monster truck, interactive displays, play areas, retail offerings and more.

Also running on weekends from June 27th through July 12th is the return of Red, White and Brews.  The event features a "hometown celebration of Americana food and fun."  Located in Hometown Square, Red, White and Brews features delicious treats, plenty of everyone's favorite beers, family activities, entertainment and fireworks.

This year California's Great America has stepped up their game by making their existing New Orleans style event bigger than ever.  Now known as Carnivale at Orleans Place, the event will be home to the Spectacle of Color Parade, already a hit at many Cedar Fair parks.

The event will take place every day from July 28th through August 2nd.  There will be plenty of authentic New Orleans style food to try, live entertainment at every corner and even fireworks on select nights.

The Fall will user in the return of Halloween Haunt for adults and The Great Pumpkin Fest for kids, with Winterfest not far after celebrating the holidays.
