‘Tis the season in Morro Bay

MORRO BAY It’s holiday time and Morro Bay Winterfest is in full swing with fun things to do! You can visit Santa’s House until Dec. 15 from 6 to 8 p.m. and let Santa know your wish for gifts. Santa will have presents and treats for children and pictures are free, but frames have a small cost. Jolly Old Saint Nick will be in residence at the Chess Board on the Embarcadero. This event is sponsored by Morro Bay Rotary.

Friday, Dec. 7 from 6 to 9 p.m.. there will be an adult scavenger hunt with beer and wine. Retail and services businesses will have a winemaker or brewmaster placed inside their business to give a sip of their products. A Yuletide passport will be given to each participating business at the start of the event and a completely filled out passport will be entered to win a prize of a full weekend of wining and dining. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Morro Bay Harbor Department.

If you are a creative baker, you might want to try your hand at the Gingerbread House Competition to be held on Dec. 8 from 12 to 2 p.m. at the Inn at Morro Bay. Build it at home and bring it in to be displayed and judged. Three categories give everyone a chance — professional, children under 18, and family. The house will be judged by people’s choice and the winner will receive fabulous prizes.

It will snow in Moro Bay on Dec. 9 but only at Tidelands Park from 12 to 3 p.m. Kids of all ages can have fun playing in the snow. There will be a sledding hill, a snowball alley and an area for those little ones under 5 years of age. You can also enter the Elf on a Shelf contest where families can create their naughty elf in a diorama. Elves are provided.
