Some of Balboa Park's museum and educational institutions set up booths during the events to offer hands-on activities and crafts for kids. Some museums also offer special late-night hours.

Some performers set to appear include the San Diego Youth Symphony Chamber, Mariachi Victoria de San Diego, Bayou Brothers, and Flavor Company Dance.

On the food truck end, a lineup of delicious eats from Beachin' Boba, Dang Brother Pizza, Monster Crafts, Devilisious, and several others will be available.
