It’s the most wonderful time of the year when Balboa Park is full of good cheer! The first weekend of December signals the start of the Christmas holidays in San Diego’s Balboa Park. This year’s December Nights celebration is scheduled for December 2-December 3, 2016.

Not familiar with December Nights? It used to be called Christmas on the Prado, if that rings any bells. The 39th annual celebration attracts thousands of residents and visitors eager to visit participating museums for free, listen to Christmas caroling, view beautiful holiday light displays, munch on holiday-themed fare, sip Glögg, and visit with like-minded community members dressed in their best holiday clothes.

For the most up to date schedule of events and attractions, please visit Balboa Park’s dedicated page for December Nights.

The fun begins on  Friday, December 2, 2016 from 3:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. and concludes on Saturday, December 3 , 2016 from Noon to 11:00 p.m.!

Merry Christmas, San Diego!
