The Front Porch

Celebrate summer on the Avenue

In the fall of 1967, Clara, a white widow, stubbornly refuses her daughter's insistence she move from her home in Baltimore where she's lived for 30 years; due to increasing racial tensions in the country and because her new neighbors are black. Although she's a bit apprehensive about them at first, in time, she eventually develops a warm relationship. When Dr. Martin Luther King is assassinated in the spring of 1968, tensions explode throughout the city and both families are caught in the middle of a race riot. Through their shared experiences; they come to appreciate and value their neighborhood and community, confront their fears and prejudices and become true friends.

Taste of December Nights

Dec 4 - Dec 6, 2020

For more than 40 years, the San Diego community has welcomed in the holiday season by celebrating the annual December Nights at Balboa Park. Due to the current pandemic conditions, we are saddened that our beloved gift to the region cannot occur as we know it. Instead, the City of San Diego is offering a "Taste of December Nights."

The program will have some of your favorite food vendors and food trucks from past December Nights in a drive-thru setting in the Inspiration Point parking lot near Balboa Park.

The Jewels of the Season, a collection of handcrafted ornaments, have been a holiday “must-see” at the Timken Museum of Art for more than 20 years. Each ornament features semi-precious gems, sequins, stones, and filigree collected around the world by the creators, San Diego artisans Florence Hord and Elizabeth Schlappi. Lynne Thompson, a personal friend of Schlappi, will speak on the wonderful history behind the ornaments.
