The Port of San Diego will be hosting a family-friendly holiday event at the Aquatic Center Bayfront in National City to spread the holiday cheer. 

The free event will take place on Dec. 7  in the heart of Pepper Park at 3299 Tidelands Avenue, National City from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Attendants can enjoy complimentary holiday treats, refreshments, giveaways, activities, and have their photo taken with Santa, who will be on center stage ready to share some holiday cheer. 

“​​This is the third year the Port is hosting this special South Bay Holiday event where our community can come together and be joyful,” said Commissioner Sandy Naranjo, National City’s appointee on the Board of Port Commissioners. “It’s a great way to interact with the public, showcase our Aquatic Center, and support our local artisans and merchants.”

Visitors may shop for unique, handmade gifts created by local artisan craft vendors who will be on-site with one-of-a-kind offerings available for purchase.

The Port will offer shuttle services from two pick-up locations in National City: Paradise Creek Apartments, 2120 Hoover Avenue, and the National City Public Library at 1401 National City Blvd.

No RSVP is required to attend, and parking at the venue is free and plentiful. For more information or if you have any questions, contact
