Alpine Puts on Christmas Parade of Lights & Snow Festival

That glow in the eastern foothills is the 15th annual Alpine Village Christmas Parade of Lights & Snow Festival getting ready in Alpine. This year the night parade will turn Alpine Boulevard into another shimmering fantasy land on Dec. 3, thanks to the Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Alpine Community Center. Anyone can parade down the community’s main street in the traditional holiday extravaganza.  The only parade requirement is that all entries — family pet, lawn tractor, bike, floats — must be trimmed with holiday lights. There are no prizes or entry fees. Just get in line with Santa Claus and everyone else at 6 p.m. on West Victoria Drive at Alpine Boulevard. The parade steps off at 6:30 p.m., headed toward the free Snow Festival at the Alpine Community Center, 1830 Alpine Blvd. Call the Chamber office at (619) 445-2722 or visit alpinechamber.com to participate or get more information.

Voice Your Opinion


We Want Your Opinions on San Diego’s Big Issues In the coming months, Probosky Research (one of California’s leading opinion research firms) will continue its partnership with SD METRO to survey San Diego residents about topics of interest to our readers. We’d like to throw open the door for suggestions for topics. What do you want to know? What do you think you know, but aren’t sure? What are you certain you know, but want to prove it beyond doubt? Ideally, we’d like to see questions that have to do with public policy.

Some areas may include Mayor Filner’s first 100 days job performance, should the city be responsible for economic growth and the creation of new jobs, how important are infrastructure improvements to our daily lives (streets and bridges, etc.), how important is water independence, how satisfied are residents with public transit or how do city residents value Balboa Park and other open spaces? Do you believe the City Council should revive the Plaza de Panama plan for Balboa Park?
