It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Winterfest takes the cake for my favorite time to be at Kings Island, but I love when the park gets decked out for special events!

Winterfest is up there for me too. That might be “the most wonderful time of year” if you ask me again tomorrow. :D

Looks great, just surprised they are using red bulbs in some of the gold garlands since carnival colors are traditionally purple, green, and gold (unless it’s a supply chain issue where they could not obtain the purple and green bulbs to use this year).  Red bulbs just seems more of a Winterfest color.

One of the very few official things about Carnival is the colors — purple, green and gold. Rex introduced them in 1872 in advance of his first parade.

The red and gold bulbs in the above photos are in Oktoberfest (Germany).

Yep. So if you see other colors, that’s why. 
 

By the way, the show looks great this year. They were doing a live rehearsal while I was there.
