California Center for the Arts’ Northern Lights Ends This Sunday

This dazzling display was specially curated by Escondido’s very own Peace family, featured on ABC’s The Great Christmas Light Fight.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and San Diego is again flooded with loads of twinkling lights. Although circumstances have changed many plans, there are still plenty of ways to soak in that holiday glow we all love.

One you definitely don’t want to miss is California Center for the Arts’ Northern Lights.

The center, which has been closed due to the pandemic, teamed up with the Peace family to bring its second annual outdoor holiday experience to life. And it’s exactly the extra dose of holiday cheer we all need.

The display covers all twelve acres of the campus, full of lights and brimming with joy. Wander through paths decked out in thousands of lights while you jingle to seasonal sounds. 

Northern Lights has it all. Watch lights dance to the beat of the music, ooh and aah at giant LED holiday trees and take selfies in the magical tunnel of light. You’ll even come across figurines of some of your favorite holiday characters.

The display is free for all to visit and runs daily through January 3, 2021. Visitors can also make donations to help keep the event free on the CA Center for the Arts website or via text.

Safety, of course, is of utmost importance. All visitors must wear masks and, with 12 acres to spread out in, there will be plenty of room to practice safe social distancing. Hand-sanitizing stations will also be located throughout the campus.

So grab your masks, San Diego, and get ready to soak in the magic of the season!

Location: 340 North Escondido Boulevard, Escondido
