Holiday-themed Events will Delight in December 2013

December 3, 2013

On Sat. Dec 14, Old Town San Diego State Historic Park hosts Holiday in the Park. All of the museums, stores and restaurants in the park will be open and richly decorated. Guests will enjoy special holiday treats, activities and extended shopping hours, along with strolling carolers on this evening until 8 p.m. Guests will also be able to view gingerbread houses in the merchant shops and enjoy s’mores by the bonfire.

Elaborately decorated gingerbread houses will be a highlight of Holiday in the Park.

The beloved Las Posadas procession is hosted on Sunday, Dec. 15. This centuries-old tradition is being celebrated in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park for the 63rd consecutive year.  The Park Merchants Association and Write Out Loud reenact the biblical journey of Mary and Joseph through the town of Bethlehem.  The event begins at 2 p.m. with a musical pre-show in the state park, with the live theatrical procession starting promptly at 5 p.m.  A piñata party and bonfire follow at 6 p.m. 

The 63rd-annual Las Posadas re-enacts the biblical story of Mary and Joseph’s search for a birthplace for the Christ child on December 15 at 5 p.m. in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park.

During the week between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, winter evenings are celebrated in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park.  Join carolers and other performers from dusk to 9 p.m.  Sponsored by Fiesta de Reyes, free s’mores ‘round the bonfire are the highlight of the evening.
