Located in the Central area of San Diego, Balboa Park draws crowds to its December celebration that features lights, carolers, bands food from around the globe, music, theatrical performances, dancing, and vendors selling handmade crafts. You might even get a chance to snap a picture with Santa Claus himself. The event lasts for two nights during the first Friday and Saturday of December. Another plus is that area museums suspend their admission fee during December Nights, which is usually from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Almost 300,000 people attend this festive event each year. Admission to the event is free.
