Exciting things are happening this weekend, and we like to keep visitors and locals alike in the loop of San Diego events. Below is a compiled list of what to look forward to.
Friday, Nov. 17th
Santee’s Holiday Lighting Celebration. 5:30pm-8:30 pm at the Santee Trolley Square.
Alright Christmas enthusiast, this event was really made for you. Some of you reading this are wondering what a trolley is, and it’s those large red public trains that have made their presence a distinguished trademark in San Diego. Unlike the rest of the world, our trains like run above ground, and our farthest stop going out to east county is the Santee Trolley Square leading to a public market. This free family-friendly event will sport live music, craft activities, food vendors, and carnival-like activities for kids. Since parking is limited, try going green and taking public transportation. At 6:15 pm the tree lighting ceremony starts (Don’t mind that Thanksgiving hasn’t happened yet)
