The Christmas Parade
The annual event kicks off with a parade starting at 1:30 PM. The parade will travel along Girard Avenue until about 2:30 PM when it ends at the La Jolla Recreation Center. The parade has been going on for almost 60 years now. During the holidays this is one of the best events in town.
A Festival Decorated By Christmas Light Installers
Many businesses in La Jolla hire Christmas light installers to hang Christmas lights at their stores during the weeks leading up to the event. This is always a great addition to the parade and festival. As soon as the parade ends, the holiday festival begins. The festival will include live music, dance performances, a Kids Zone and tons of great family-friendly fun. There will also be a Christmas tree lighting ceremony at the end of the festival. Santa will be visiting during the parade and festival. He will be riding in the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club's classic 1915 Black Packard Convertible. Santa Claus will also be available for pictures throughout the festival portion of the event. The Candy Cane Carollers and many other music groups will be performing at the event this year. Local businesses like the Birch Aquarium, the La Jolla Historical Society, the Gillispie School and the Rotary Club will be participating in the festival as well. If you enjoy classic cars, parade floats or Christmas music, be sure to stop by the event this year.
The La Jolla Christmas Parade & Holiday Festival will be held on December 3rd from 1:30 PM to 5 PM. The parade will run along Girard Avenue. Parking will be very limited during the event. Most of Girard Street will be blocked off, along with most of Kline and Hershel as well. Additionally, many streets will be tow-away zones starting at 9:30 AM on the day of the event. Once you find parking, it's best to leave your vehicle parked during the entire event. The Holiday Festival will be held at the La Jolla Rec Center, which is an easy walk from the parade route. If you're looking for a free holiday event for the family, the La Jolla Christmas Parade and Holiday Festival is the perfect choice.
