San Diego’s First Weekend of December Fun

Whether you call it December Nights or Christmas on the Prado, Balboa Park will be where much of the action and fun happens this weekend. If you like crowds you’ll love it. Susan DeVincent and Sherry Knight will do their radio shows on the Prado this Friday and Tony Martin will be there on Saturday. Try to get there early and bring a warm jacket or sweater. December nights get chilly in Balboa Park. Here’s what else is going on this weekend.
