Balboa Park December Nights 2016

Courtney Tomesch Balboa Park December Nights 2016

     Last weekend was Balboa Park December Nights. They decorate Balboa Park with some lights, have tons of food from different countries around the world, some singing and dancing from other cultures, open up all the museums and A TON of people show up! I was not expecting that many people to be there. I kept hearing there was going to be around 350,000! It wasn't exactly how I pictured this event. I was hoping for more little booths selling gifts for the holidays, instead it was pretty much all food booths (who also don't take cards by the way. Stupid on their end if you ask me we walked away from a ton of booths because they were cash only.)  I could have been in the wrong spot for all the shopping booths there were so many people and I didn't go on the other side of the park.

      While at December Nights we went to two museums, Museum of Photographic Arts and San Diego Model Railroad Museum. I went to MOPA a couple months before and they still had the same exhibits up. This was my first time going to the Model Railroad Museum, and it was so cool. I've always enjoyed looking at model trains, my grandma use to take us to a few set ups around out town during the holidays when we were little. I loved the Christmas village set up! They are always so cool to see how detail they are.

     I finally did the Balboa Park December Nights after wanting to for 5 years. It was cool to see it all decorated, but would I do it again? Probably not, there were too many people. I'll just go to all the museums when they are having there Residents Free Day.

Please share! Thanks! #courtneytomesch
