Outdoor Holiday Event: Taylor Winterfest 2020 – Blizzard of Oz
Visitor’s guide, information, and photo gallery for Taylor Winterfest 2020 – Blizzard of Oz. More than 200,000 holiday lights along the 2/3 mile path.
Every weekend from now until January 10th, Heritage Park in Taylor will host Winterfest. Each weekend will bring a new theme and adventure to the event. The first weekend featured a short reenactment of the Nutcracker Ballet.
Winterfest 2020 Blizzard of Oz takes guests along a 2/3 mile “Yellow Brick Road”. The path leads guests through the Heritage Park. This includes the historic Coan Lake area, the petting farm, the Taylor Conservatory as well as the Botanical Gardens.
Along the path, there are full-building projections and dazzling light displays. Guests can also enjoy entertainment and more than 100 lighted Christmas trees. By far my favorite part of the adventure is the lighted interactive wall. The attraction encourages guests to wipe away the frosted windows. This reveals Santa together with his elves at the North Pole.
