This year, the LEGO tree features 20 cupcake LEGO ornaments in honor of LEGOLAND California’s 20th birthday.

The fun continues in Heartlake City as guests enjoy the LEGO Friends live holiday show. Kids can sing and dance along with Mia, Stephanie, Andrea, Emma and Olivia, plus join in building activities in the Heartlake City stables.
