Port of San Diego Big Bay Balloon Parade & More!
December 18, 2012
If you like balloons (or just enjoy looking up at the sky), then you definitely don’t want to miss out on the largest balloon parade in the nation. That’s right, the 2012 Port of San Diego Big Bay Balloon Parade is coming soon to Downtown San Diego.
Get the family together and head to one of the intersections or streets on the updated route of the parade (due to the construction on Harbor Drive) on Thursday, December 27th. If you’re asking “why Thursday?” you’re asking the same question I did, and it’s because the parade coincides with the Bridgepoint Holiday Bowl later that evening.
You will also want to stick around for the free Family Festival (from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm on the Broadway Pier)! There will be a Rock Wall to climb, a Field Goal Kick to try your foot at kicking, temporary airbrush tattoos, carnival games, balloon artists and plenty more. And if that isn’t enough you can get your boogie on at the Battle of the University Bands!
Sounds like a grand time to me, so what d’you say?
