Concord Pacific Place is the venue of this winter festival, which is closely next to the Science World. Access to the entire site is covered with the price of admission, but some things do cost extra such as market vendor merchandise, food, and drinks.
There are also additional costs for the amusement rides and tubing park slides. Skating on the frozen river is free; you can either hire or bring your skates. The event usually runs from November 23rd until December 30th. Below are some zones Aurora Winter Festival is divided up into:

Meanwhile, in the whimsical forest, it’s a small area with a fox character, gnome village and gingerbread hut. These areas are especially suitable for young families and little children.
This is an indoor facility where visitors can find the Santa Claus and various members of his entourage. And it is also a perfect place where kids can write a letter to Santa.
Finally, to avoid having to pay extra to rent equipment, remember to carry your skates and helmet. Last but not least, don’t forget the camera; there are lots of photos to take.
