SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Now that Halloween has passed, the holiday season is upon us here in San Diego.
This, of course, means holiday music and parades will fill our streets any day now.
San Diego routinely gets in the holiday spirit with some creative parades and festivals celebrating the season and showcasing our county's unique landscape. The popular Bay of Lights returns to our shoreline, with boats getting the Clark Griswold treatment as they sail through the bay.
El Cajon's Mother Goose parade is billed as the largest parade in San Diego County. Held every Sunday before Thanksgiving, thousands will line the streets to watch Santa, marching bands, and more as the parade begins on Main St. at El Cajon Blvd. marching toward First St.
North Park's annual parade begins on University Ave. between Utah and Iowa Streets, bringing it's traditional creation of a "Winter Wonderland" to San Diego. Vintage cars, music, dancers, and the Big Jolly man himself will also parade through North Park.
Chula Vista's favorite parade will bring holiday magic to the South Bay with a children's fair capping off the festivities, including a bounce house, holiday story times, and visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
WOOF. Pets enjoy the holidays just as much as the rest of us and will take to downtown to celebrate the season in December. Owners and their furry friends will dress up in holiday clothing and march from to and from MLK Promenade Park at Fourth Avenue and K Street.
