Balboa Park
December Nights
Presented by Barona

Entertainment and holiday cheer are all part of this classic San Diego celebration. The main-stage Spreckels Organ Pavilion highlights choral presentations from a variety of groups and the Del Cerro Baptist Church Christmas Story Tree is featured each night. The Palisades Stage presents holiday music and dance. Music, theatrical, and dance presentations in many of the museums and cultural organizations-including the San Diego Junior Theatre, San Diego Civic Youth Ballet, and the traditional Santa Lucia Procession at the Museum of Man-fill the heart of Balboa Park.

Entertainment runs from 5:00 - 9:00pm on Friday and from noon to 10:00pm on Saturday.

If you are interested in being an entertainer please download the Entertainer Application and return it by October 8, 2007.
