For the first official lighting ceremony of the 2018 WinterFest season on Opening NIght this Friday, the longtime radio voice of the Cincinnati Reds, Marty Brennaman, will flip the switch on more than 5 million lights at 5:30 p.m.
The lighting ceremony -- which happens every night at WinterFest and is presented by Lykins Energy Solutions -- lasts approximately 20 minutes and also includes a song and dance spectacular and a 100 percent chance of snow! Afterward, you and your family can stroll through the park and enjoy the sights and sounds across ten winter wonderlands, watch live shows, treat your taste buds to the sweet and savory flavors of the season, visit our stores for holiday décor, gifts and mementos and enjoy up to 19 rides, including the Mystic Timbers and Flight of Fear roller coasters.
Brennaman has been the radio play-by-play broadcaster of the Reds since 1974. He was the 2000 recipient of the National Baseball Hall of Fame’s Ford C. Frick Award – which is why he’s often referred to as the Hall of Famer. He has also been inducted into the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame, the National Sportswriters and Sportscasters Hall of Fame and the National Radio Hall of Fame.
WinterFest will be open on weekends (Friday-Sunday) beginning this Friday through Dec. 9. Daily operation for the event runs Dec. 14-23 and Dec. 26-31.
Buy WinterFest tickets online and save up to $13.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to circumstances beyond Kings Island’s control, Miss Ohio 2018 Matti-Lynn Chrisman is not able to participate in this evening’s (Nov. 24) WinterFest lighting ceremony as previously announced and included in this blog. We apologize for any inconvenience.
