Get ready to revel in festive holiday style with a joyful celebration like no other when you attend the 18th annual Little Italy Tree Lighting and Christmas Village in vibrant downtown San Diego.


This fun, family event brings the San Diego community together to enjoy loads of holiday cheer and traditional seasonal festivities like jolly décor, live music and entertainment, tasty Italian cookies, hot apple cider, and a whole lot more. The neighborhood closes down India Street to accommodate thousands of visitors and create a holiday wonderland filled with unmatched festival fun.


Head over to the Piazza Basilone to see an impressive, 25-foot-high tower of over 1,000 beautiful poinsettias, then visit Piazza del Famiglia to enjoy the tree lighting ceremony and welcome Santa as he arrives by fire truck. Santa hits the scene at 4pm, and kids can visit his living room for photo opportunities, candy canes and fun crafts. Adults can wander through the Christmas Village on India Street, between W. Cedar and Grape Street, to pick up stocking stuffers, unique gifts and tasty holiday treats.


The Little Italy Tree Lighting and Christmas Village is a free event. Festivities are scheduled from 4pm-8pm on Saturday, December 3rd. Santa Claus arrives at 4pm and the tree lighting ceremony is at 5:30pm. Visit http://www.littleitalysd.com/events/little-italy-tree-lighting for more event details.
