Jodie Sweetin turns on the Christmas lights at the LEGOLAND California Resort

With Christmas arriving, the LEGOLAND California Resort invited actor Jodie Sweetin to turn on the theme park’s festive lights.

Jodie Sweetin, star of Full House and Fuller House joined Santa to turn on the Christmas lights at the LEGOLAND California Resort. The 30 foot tall Christmas tree features 11,000 lights and is the centre of the theme park’s decorations.

To celebrate the start of the destination’s 20th anniversary celebrations, Master Model Builders constructed 20 LEGO cupcake ornaments – one representing each year that the gates have been open. The cupcakes are just some of the 400 brick built ornaments that decorate the tree.

“Thank you to LEGOLAND California Resort for having me here today, it’s an amazing honour to light this incredible LEGO tree and get the holiday season started,” said Sweetin. “I look forward to coming back with my kids and enjoying all the festivities for the Park’s 20th birthday in 2019.”

To mark the occasion, the LEGOLAND California Resort donated $10,000 on Sweetin’s behalf to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, a non-profit paediatric academic medical centre dedicated to creating hope and building healthier futures for children. More children with complex health conditions are treated there than at any other hospital in Southern California.

“Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is honored to receive this donation from Jodie and LEGOLAND California Resort as it helps us continue to provide the best possible care for children,” said said Terry Green, Associate Senior Vice President of Development in the Foundation at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Until the end of December, Funtown has been converted into a winter wonderland for the Holidays at LEGOLAND California Resort season. Special festive activities, shows and pop badges will be available throughout the holiday period.

Tickets to the LEGOLAND California Resort are available at the venue’s official website.
