December Nights in Balboa Park
December 1 @ 3:00 pm - December 2 @ 11:00 pm
Balboa Park December Nights, the nation’s premier holiday festival, will take place for the 40th consecutive year on Friday, December 1 from 3-11pm and Saturday, December 2 from noon-11pm. Friends, families and the community are invited to come together for festive fun, food and attractions throughout the park, including complimentary admission to Balboa Park museums from 5-9 pm. The largest free community festival in San Diego, December Nights is expected to attract more than 350,000 visitors to the park over two days to revel and enjoy the season.
As in years past, the event will offer seasonal entertainment for the whole family as well as festive holiday lighting throughout the Park – from the Plaza de Panama canopy – to the Botanical Building – to the landmark Moreton Bay Fig Tree. Delicious cuisine and holiday cheer are also all part of the long-standing San Diego celebration.
The San Diego Floral Association invites you to participate in decorating a fresh Noble fir tree for our annual Festival of Trees. To carry out the theme, consider your organization or club as a gem of our community. Decorate your tree to celebrate the history and heritage of your group, with a focus on red ornamentation. We are decorating in red because “ruby” is the color and gem for 40th anniversaries.
The San Diego Floral Association will also be selling Resendiz Brothers’ protea at the event!
