December Nights Balboa Park,
December 1-2
San Diego Floral Association Festival of Trees

Theme: GEMS OF THE COMMUNITY (IN RUBY RED) San Diego Floral invites you to participate in decorating a fresh Noble fir tree for our annual Festival of Trees. To carry out the theme, consider your organization or club as a gem of our community. Decorate your tree to celebrate the history and heritage of your group, with a focus on red ornamentation. We are decorating in red because “ruby” is the color and gem for 40th anniversaries. This year Balboa Park marks 40 years of Prado and December Nights celebrations.
