LA MESA–With the holidays quickly approaching, the 3rd annual La Mesa Holiday in the Village will be ringing in holiday cheer for everyone. Starting December 7 through December 8 in La Mesa Village, friends and family will have the chance to take part in the free festive fun with live music, cozy fires, dancing, craft vendors, food, and a kids’ area bigger than Santa’s Toy Shop. This year’s locally loved La Mesa Holiday in the Village is going back to its roots to bring guests more entertainment, more vendors, and an inclusive holiday experience for all ages to enjoy. Walk the streets of La Mesa’s historic downtown while exploring dozens of local craft vendor stands then cozy up with artisan and craft food and snack specialties. Friends and family can relax by the fire pits while enjoying holiday caroling, cheerful holiday music, and fun live entertainment. La Mesa’s free Holiday in the Village will turn everyone holly and jolly with a full lineup of entertainment across multiple stages, including traditional holiday songs and music, local bands, and community performances throughout the weekend. Children can have free fun with holiday movies, games, snacks, and crafts in the expanded children’s section. Pictures with Santa, as well festive photo-booth opportunities throughout the day and night will be available.
