On November 23rd, 2017 join 7,500+ participants and spectators in Balboa Park for the 16th Annual Thanksgiving Day 5K, presented by AimLoan.com! The turkey trot begins at 7:30am! San Diego has the country’s 4th largest homeless population, and also is tied for the lowest vacancy rates in the country. The result is that too many of our neighbors are being pushed to life on the streets. This lifestyle does not allow our neighbors to meet their full potential. Thanksgiving Day 5K is not only the most fun turkey trot in town, it also generates awareness and funds to help support Father Joe’s Villages’ efforts to provide and serve close to 1 Million Meals each year!
Go wild this holiday season at the San Diego Zoo’s annual celebration, Jungle Bells presented by California Coast Credit Union. The holiday festivities start Dec. 8, 2017, and run through Jan. 1, 2018. Jungle Bells guests will be treated to seasonal decorations, animal experiences, costumed characters, live entertainment and more.
The Zoo will be aglow with holiday cheer and activities to keep the whole family jolly. Guests can watch as animals enjoy unique enrichment treats, and guests can sample treats of their own offered at many of the Zoo’s restaurants and food stands. Don’t miss out on holiday shopping at the Zoo’s retail locations, or the holiday happy hour at Albert’s Restaurant—Happy Holidays Happens—with discounted drinks and appetizers available from 3 to 5 p.m. each day of Jungle Bells.
Jungle Bells activities and attractions are free with Zoo admission or membership. Parking is free.
