Carowinds Adding New Parade to Winterfest Celebration

Carowinds has announced that they are expanding their already popular Winterfest celebration this year by adding a brand new parade, aptly named the Winterfest Wonderland Parade.

The park shared some of the concept art seen here on their official website, which describes the parade as filled with "dazzling displays, exciting performances and extravagantly decorated holiday floats.  It sounds like the Winterfest Wonderland Parade will utilize performers the park has in their various shows to end the day with an energetic parade performance.

The floats for the addition are being created by Kern Studios, who is well known for creating Mardi Gras floats, and also fabricated those used in this summer's Grand Carnivale celebration at four Cedar Fair parks.

"The WinterFest Wonderland Parade will entertain our guests in a very special way," said Brent Barr, corporate vice president of entertainment for Cedar Fair. "This is an over-the-top production that comes right to you on the midway. It's absolutely the perfect complement to a magical evening at WinterFest."

Winterfest at Carowinds will run select nights from November 24th through December 31st.
