Global Winter Wonderland

Where: SDCCU Stadium, 9449 Friars Road, San Diego

Cost: $19 - $22

Age limit: All ages

Ongoing: until Sunday, January 7, 2018

An international celebration featuring the largest display of traditional Chinese lanterns outside of China, “Cirque du Soleil-level acrobatics,” 35+ carnival rides, holiday-themed activities and games, and international food and shopping. The luminescent, hand-crafted lanterns are inspired by international landscapes from around the world such as the Taj Mahal and the Eiffel Tower, many of which are newly designed for San Diego. Nearly 100 Chinese artisans arrive eight weeks prior to hand sew the intricate lantern displays that can reach heights of 20 feet. The art of designing and illuminating lanterns is a rich Chinese custom dating back 2000 years. San Diego has not hosted a large-scale holiday lights attraction since 2013 when the Holiday of Lights at the Del Mar Fairgrounds closed after nearly two decades. Runs select days, November 19 through January 7.
