Embrace the magical nostalgia of Coronado on Friday, December 7, 2012 during our annual Christmas Parade, complete with Santa’s arrival by ferry. This year marks the 37th year the Coronado Chamber of Commerce has hosted the Holiday Open House celebration that has become a tradition for countless San Diego residents and visitors alike.
This special evening showcases the magic of our island and promotes our unique assortment of boutiques and shops, making shopping local easy with Orange Avenue closed to cars from 5-9 PM.
The magical isle of Coronado has so much to offer year round, but it is during the holiday season that our small town truly reflects the magical destination it is….thus the theme of our festivities “Timeless Holiday Magic”…..part fun, part sun, and part fairytale!
