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.

Mary Ellen Mark (1940–2015) captured a captivating series a large-format Polaroid camera of twins and multiples at the annual Twins Days Festival in Twinsburg, Ohio over the summers of 2001 and 2002.

Amid a range of anecdotes and confessed frustrations, the intense bond shared between these special siblings is further illuminated in their personal statements. See these fascinating portraits on view now at The San Diego Museum of Art.
