Southern California is known as the land of sun, but in December we import a little snow. If you are looking to have a blast of wintry fun, there are plenty of places to have a (snow)ball.  

Just a mile or so away from Dodger Stadium, where the boys of summer play, you can play winter games at Snow Day L.A. (The Old Lodge, 2002 Stadium Way, L.A; www.snowdayla.com) from 6-10 p.m. Fri.-Sun. through Dec. 17. The main attraction is the multiple snow tubing lanes, but there is also an ice rink and a giant gingerbread house. Tickets start at $12. 

Snow Days at Kidspace (480 N. Arroyo Blvd., Pasadena; www.kidspacemuseum.org), which happen from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Dec. 26-30, are aimed at younger revelers. There will be real snow for making snowmen, snow angels and snowballs. Additionally, children can learn snow science, make winter-themed art projects and enjoy daily live performances. Tickets are $3 plus $13 museum admission. 

Discovery Cube L.A. will also mix snow and science during its Winter Wonderfest from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Dec. 16-17, 22-24 and Dec. 26-Jan. 8. (11800 Foothill Blvd., Sylmar; discoverycube.org/LA). Kids will quickly pick up physics principles while speeding down a 75-foot ramp on inflatable tubes, and learn about engineering while constructing things out of real snow. Admission is $17.95 adults, $12.95 ages 3-14 and free for ages 2 and under, but Wonderfest tickets cost extra. 

You can also experience a winter extravaganza at the OC Fairground’s Winter Fest (88 Fair Dr., Costa Mesa; www.winterfestoc.com) Dec. 21-Jan. 7. Among the smorgasbord of seasonal delights are eight lanes of ice tubing, a candy cane carnival, an ice rink, a snow play zone, a holiday light installation and the world’s largest walk-through ornament. Admission is $15 adults, $10 ages 3-12, and some activities require an additional fee.
