Probably the biggest San Diego holiday celebrations are what’s now called “December Nights” in Balboa Park (the event used to be called “Christmas on the Prado”). 300,000 people are estimated to attend them over two days.
We went there this past Saturday and had a terrific time. Balboa Park has very limited parking. Our game plan was to get there early in the morning and spend a few hours at the zoo. It worked beautifully (hint: those who tried to drive in later in the evening got stuck in horrible miles-long traffic jams that would just inch along).
Here are a few photos for you to enjoy:
