On December 8th and 15th at 5:30pm, Seaport Village is lucky to be one of the stops for the beautiful Parade of Lights! The parade features boats decorated festively for the holiday season and it usually gets 80,000 spectators, which doesn’t surprise me at all! Festive boats and beautiful Seaport Village? Yes, please!
This year, the parade celebrates its 41st anniversary with boats judged for creative lighting, decorations and crowd-engaging fun.
And of course, Seaport Village is the PERFECT viewing location.
Please note that on December 8th & December 15th self parking at Seaport Village will be a flat fee of $15 after 3 pm.
I can’t wait to see the boats. Hope to see you all at the Village This Sunday and next Sunday the 15th!
Every year at Seaport Village, we have a holiday decorating contest. We ask the stores to use their imagination and creativity to decorate their stores in the most festive way possible. There are 3 winner categories: Best Overall, Most Traditional & Most San Diegan (naturally!). The judges went around the village last night and came to a decision on our winners. Introducing the winners of the 2013 Seaport Village Holiday Décor contests:
Presenting the Soap Opera went beyond adorable on their decorations. They decorated with rubber duckies (which are for sale at their store). Very creative and cute! “Quacky Christmas”, I mean seriously how amazing is that? Well done, everyone at soap Opera!
The Bay Company definitely warmed the judges’ hearts with the most traditional decorations. They frosted their windows to look like it was snowing and cold outside. Isn’t that so sweet? The judges also loved the gift wrapped doors. Feels just like home!
Everyone did such a great job decorating and getting in the holiday spirit. We applaud all the San Diego stores at Seaport Village for their hard work. Come check out the stores and their decorations for yourself. Seaport Village is open 10am-9pm everyday!
They accept gifts from infants to 18 years old with a wide variety of gifts to choose from. Here’s their wish list:
