Oh Tannenbaum... How Gaily thee are Lighted!
It's time for December Nights in Spanish Village Art Center and beautiful Balboa Park. Sleigh bells ring, carols are sung, Christmas tree lights are beaming and gaily wrapped gifts are hung from the boughs, while visions of sugarplums nestle in the hearts and minds of yuletide visitors. Now, if that doesn't get you out and into the Christmas spirit, nothing will! I'm betting you will...
Come early and stay late as the artists and studios of Spanish Village extend their yuletide welcome to you. The festivities kick off in Spanish Village on Friday, December 6, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. until the guests stop coming, usually around 10:00 p.m. The celebration continues Saturday, December 7, 2014 (and Sunday) in the Village!
There will be Christmas music on our brightly lit patio, performances by visiting artists, booths of goodies by our fantastic artists and crafters, and Joy, Joy, Joy thrown out by the armfuls, from all of the studios. Visit your favorites, and discover some new ones to boot!
Bring the kids to visit Santa in our gazebo, and make sure they bring their Christmas lists. He'll be there with a jolly, "HO, HO, HO" to take a photo with all the boys and girls. So, wear your Christmas best, and afterwards enjoy our hot chocolate, kettle corn, tamales and handmade ice cream booths while you are there!
We are located at 1770 Village Place, just off of Park Boulevard, between the San Diego Zoo and the Natural History Museum.
We promise, it will be "...a beautiful sight. You'll be happy tonight (and, every night. Daytime, too!). Walking in a Winter Wonderland!"
Fade to, "Oh tannenbaum, oh tannenbaum. How gaily thee are lighted!" HAPPY DECEMBER NIGHTS FROM ALL OF US AT SPANISH VILLAGE ART CENTER!
