(Rossmoor, CA) – Over three thousand children of all ages and their parents enjoyed an evening of holiday thrills and chills at the Fourth Annual Rossmoor Winter Festival, Friday, December 14, 2018. Rossmoor Community Services District President Tony DeMarco gave the opening remarks and thanked the many dedicated staff, sponsors and volunteers for their important contributions, without which the event would not have been possible. Honorable Assemblymember Tyler Diep arrived just in time to lead the countdown for a spectacular tree lighting ceremony and take photos with Santa!

Also in attendance were General Manager Joe Mendoza, former General Manager James D. Ruth and the RCSD Board of Directors. Said, President Tony DeMarco, “Events like this are so important because they really build community and foster relationships between friends and neighbors.”

The incredibly successful holiday event is hosted by Rossmoor Community Services District Board of Directors and staff at Rush Park in Rossmoor, CA. Once again this year the Rossmoor Winter Festival Title Sponsor was Chamberlain Real Estate Group. Supervised activities included a snow zone, sledding area, photos with Santa, the Grinch, Snow Princesses Elsa and Ana, holiday arts and crafts, fire truck and petting zoo.  Families eagerly lined up for the extremely popular 3-D holiday lights trolley ride.

A fabulous entertainment lineup included talented local school choir performances from Hopkinson Elementary and McAuliffe Middle School and Los Alamitos High School. Calvary Band and Bells of Bethlehem helped to make the season bright. The Seal Beach Lions Club hosted the successful beer and wine garden. The delicious array of gourmet food trucks, which included Cousins Maine Lobster, Dogzilla, BrewWings, Vivace Pizza, Java on the Go, were inundated with hungry families.
