My husband and I took our boys and one of their friends to Carowinds Winterfest this past Saturday. None of us were disappointed. For my husband and I, walking through Candy Cane Lane, holding hands, and listening to Christmas music made for a great date night while the boys were off by themselves riding rides. For the boys, riding Afterburn in the Christmas lit scene was amazing.

As my husband and I walked through the park, we saw many smiles and heard many laughs. At almost any point in time, we could hear someone nearby singing along with the Christmas music playing live or through the speakers.

Excited children raced from ride to ride. Santa welcomed each and every child to sit on his lap while Mrs. Clause stood outside her kitchen greeting the many guests. Parents walked around snapping photos at the many decorated photo spots.
