Winter Wonderland returning to Circuit of the Americas
Winter is coming ... to the Circuit of The Americas.
The second annual Winter Wonderland at the Circuit offers a completely new, immersive experience from Nov. 23 to Dec. 30.
Look for the Chinese Lantern Festival, a display of illuminated hand-crafted sculptures using a traditional technique. The celebration includes interactive entertainment, “immersing guests with the culture, music, arts, and life of authentic China.” The lanterns are created using steel frames surrounded by colorful rayon and illuminated by LED lights. (Not sure there were LEDs in 15th century China, but you get what they are going for.)
