Alpine Christmas Parade of Lights & Snow Festival is Fun for ALL!

Parade of Lights, Alpine Ca., 91901

Celebrate a real rural Christmas on Friday, Dec. 1, during the 22nd Annual Alpine Village Christmas Parade of Lights & Snow Festival in Alpine! The glittering night parade presented by the Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce starts at 6:30 p.m. on Alpine Boulevard at West Victoria Drive. Every entry glows with holiday lights during the march down the boulevard, which has street light decorations for the first time in years. Check out the buildings decorated in lights! The parade ends at the free Snow Festival in the Alpine Creek Town Center, 1347 Tavern Road. Santa Claus, vendors, children’s activities and entertainment as well as free sledding on real snow will be fun for everyone until 9 p.m. Food will be available for sale.

And for the first time in more than a decade, we have bright lighted holiday decorations on street light poles along the parade route! It’s a wonderful opportunity to take those perfect holiday nighttime parade photos and videos of the night parade of lights and kids sledding down the snow hill at the Festival.  Many thanks to The Alpine Sun for sharing  their pictures!

Spanish History Talk About How Diego Became San Diego – November 7, 2017

Linking New World to Old World – Five Spanish Stories and How Diego Became San Diego. Tuesday November 7, 2017 at 6pm at the Alpine Library.  Veteran teacher and world traveler Bill Benson will give a talk presenting the viewpoint that the colonial history of the Southwest points more accurately to Spain, rather than England, as the “mother country” of this region. Bill Benson is a retired teacher and was president of the Julian Historical Society for many years. His many trips to the Baja peninsula and the missions in lower California led him on a personal quest to find out more about the amazing history of this region. He has traveled extensively in Spain and has twice hiked the Camino Frances, a 500-mile trail between southern France and northern Spain. The Alpine Library is located at 1752 Alpine Blvd, Alpine, CA 91901. For more info please call us at (619) 445-4221 or email albranch1752@gmail.com Visit our website at www.sdcl.org
