Winter Fun in Hollywood, As Snow Arrives at L. Ron Hubbard’s Winter Wonderland

A tradition begun in 1983 as a gift from L. Ron Hubbard to the children of Hollywood, Winter Wonderland continues to bring joy, with the addition this year of eight tons of real snow to the delight of young Angelenos.

On a mild Southern California afternoon, with temperatures in the high 60s, eight tons of real snow appearing on Hollywood Boulevard would be a remarkable phenomenon. But that is exactly what happened at L. Ron Hubbard’s Winter Wonderland December 18, to the delight of local children and those visiting the Hollywood Walk of Fame with their families from out of town.

When not cavorting in the snow, children were treated to entertainment, face-painting, a toy giveaway and photos with Santa and his elves.

Winter Wonderland has welcomed generations of children annually since 1983. It was then that author, humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard first donated a giant Christmas Tree to the Hollywood community. And that tradition has continued ever since.

In keeping with its iconic location at 6724 Hollywood Blvd., Winter Wonderland is designed as a Hollywood set with a 60-foot Christmas tree, Santa’s house, and a forest of evergreen trees, providing joy to thousands of children and their families every holiday season.

Angelenos and those visiting from out of town are invited to come and enjoy the fun through December 25, Mon–Thursday 5–9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 2–9 p.m. Admission is free.

The Scientology religion was founded by author and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard. The first Church of Scientology was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 and the religion has expanded to more than 11,000 Churches, Missions and affiliated groups, with millions of members in 167 countries.
