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.

Polar Bear Cam

Jul 29, 2020 - ongoing

Being at home doesn’t have to be a “bear” when you can catch all the action on the San Diego Zoo’s Polar Cam, and other live wildlife cams featuring animals at the San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park. From their habitat to yours, these livestreaming video cams provide “being there” views of wildlife as they explore, eat, swing, roll, pounce, scratch, and play through their day.

Penguin Cam

May 18 - ongoing

There’s always something exciting going on in the big Dan and Vi McKinney Penguin Habitat in Africa Rocks, home to a large colony of African penguins. The spacious Penguin Beach features a cobblestone beach, a gigantic 200,000-gallon saltwater pool, nesting areas, and rockwork that mimics the granite boulders found at Boulders Beach in South Africa.
