San Diego December Events That Will Knock Your Stockings Off

December is a wonderful time here in San Diego. The air is a bit crisper and the holidays are around the corner, but our city is just as sunny as ever. Looking for something to do with your friends and family this month? There are plenty of San Diego December events going on, and they’re all perfect both for locals and your visiting guests.

Read on to see what’s going on this December in San Diego:

Illuminated Boat Parades

San Diego is known for its close relation with the water. After all, our beaches are world-famous, and we even have parades on the water! This month, you can catch the Parade of Lights, a distinctly San Diego tradition where dozens of brightly illuminated sailboats, powerboats, and other vessels parade the harbors and enchant onlooking landlubbers.

There are several boat parades going on, which you can catch at your convenience:

Gaslamp Holiday Pet Parade

San Diego is one of the most pet-friendly cities in the country. Everywhere you go, you’ll see dog-friendly restaurants, parks, and residences. Do you love seeing cute pets and animals? Check out the Gaslamp Holiday Pet Parade on Dec.11. This is where pet owners take their furry, scaled, and feathered pets for a stroll while decked out in their most awesome outfits.

The parade kicks off at 3 p.m., starting at MLK Promenade Park, but the best places to watch from are along Fourth & Fifth Avenues (between E and K Streets). Get there early!

March Madness 2012 Home Party!

Friday, March 9th, 2012

With 68 teams competing, this single elimination tournament will determine the Men’s National Champion of NCAA Division College Basketball. Starting on March 11, 2012 with “Selection Sunday” the tournament is held for three weeks and will finish up with the National Championship game on April 2, 2012. March Madness 2012 is one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year, and according to Nielsen Ratings, an audience measurement system that began ratings systems for televisions in 1950, the NCAA college basketball tournament may be the highest in two decades.
Just last year, ratings increased more than 24% from 2010, which is the highest since 1991, and with the ‘show every game’ format it appears more people continue to watch, or are watching for the first time.

So, how do you celebrate and take part of March Madness 2012? Have a March Madness 2012 Home Party. Heck, have two or more. With three weeks of tournament play you’ll surely find many opportunities to share good times with friends and family.

A March Madness 2012 viewing party is easy and fun.

Here are some great tips to making your guests feel great.

  1. Decorate based on your guests’ favorite team. If everyone you invite is cheering for the same team, then get the team colors, banners, pennants, posters and flags. Encourage everyone to show spirit and dress in their team colors. If the crowd is mixed, then decorate in a more general way by using basketball images and themes so that there’s no home court advantage. After all, even if you want one team to win you don’t want friends to feel unwelcome in your home, right?
  2. Make sure you can view the game easily with great seating. If you don’t feel you have the right seating you can always rent furniture for the day or even for the full three weeks. Especially if you’re having more than one March Madness 2012 party. Of course, the most obvious part of the get together is that your television needs to be in working condition. If you need to purchase an NCAA College Basketball Tournament package, then do so before hand. Not the day of the game.
  3. Your guests are going to be hungry, as there’s nothing like sports to build up an appetite. The food you serve has got to be small and plentiful, and on good tough plastic or sturdy paper dishes. Food such as small slider beef and turkey burgers, chicken wings, nachos and dip, and pizza is always a great choice.
  4. In most cases, there will be alcohol served, but be a responsible host and have other options for guests who either don’t drink or who are being designated drivers and offer soda, juices, and lemonade. Most non-drinkers and designated drivers are responsible enough to bring their own non-alcoholic beverages, but be a perfect host anyway.
