Nov. 26, 2012 – Criminal Minds Actor is Guest of Honor at Legoland Tree Lighting
Legoland California will welcome actor Thomas Gibson as this year’s special guest to light the world’s largest Lego Christmas tree at the family theme park’s tenth annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Monday, November 26, 2012.
Gibson, a father of three and long-time Legoland fan, currently stars on the CBS hit crime drama Criminal Minds and his credits range from comedy (Dharma and Greg) to drama on the big screen (Eyes Wide Shut).
More than 11,000 LED lights have been added this year to illuminate Legoland California’s tree which is created out of more than 245,000 forest green Duplo bricks. Adorned with 400 Lego ornaments, the tree towers over Fun Town in the 128-acre family theme park in Carlsbad, California. This event will also feature festive entertainment, fireworks and a visit from Santa himself!
At the ceremony, on Gibson’s behalf, Legoland California is donating $10,000 to Haven for Hope, the largest, most comprehensive Homeless Transformation Campus in the United States. Twenty-five percent of the homeless receiving assistance at the Haven for Hope Campus in San Antonio, Texas are children; half of which are under the age of five.
The tree lighting ceremony is part of Legoland California’s coolest holiday celebration ever, Holiday Snow Days and the new Winter Nights. Fun Town has been transformed into a magical, winter wonderland where the weather forecast calls for real snow every day and guests can build snowmen using Lego carrots and other fun Lego elements, throw snowballs at Lego themed targets and play with large, soft Lego bricks in the snow. Along with snow-filled fun, guests can enjoy festive entertainment and nightly fireworks December 26 through 31, 2012. New this year, Legoland California is extending its hours every Saturday night starting November 24th and nightly December 22nd through 31st for guest to enjoy the new Winter Nights celebration. All Holiday Snow Days and Winter Nights activities are included in the price of Legoland California admission.
The official Legoland Tree Lighting Ceremony with Thomas Gibson takes place on Monday, November 26, 2012 at 5:30 pm in the Fun Town area of Legoland California. Legoland California Resort is located in San Diego North at One Legoland Drive, Carlsbad, CA, 92008.
