Hotel del Coronado’s Community Festival Tonight: Celebrating 10 Years of Holiday Magic

- Advertisement -

Coronado, CA–Please join us tonight, Wednesday, December 3rd, for The Del’s Holiday Festival, officially marking the start of the holiday season. We’re pushing through the rain and spreading holiday joy with photos with St. Nick and his elves at Santa’s Village, holiday booths with games and prizes, carolers and more!

Coronado school children perform holiday favorites on stage in Grande Hall from 4pm to 5pm.
This year from 4pm to 8pm, The Del is making it easier to visit with St. Nick with Santa Express Passes at Santa’s Village in the Carousel Room (next to B&S Bar), where the little ones can have photos with Santa and his elves. Express Passes will be available in half hour increments, allowing families to enjoy the resort’s festivities instead of waiting in line. Passes will be available from 3:30pm.

Kids will love playing the complimentary holiday games at prize booths in the Wilder Room of Grande Hall at 4pm, while children and adults alike enjoy carolers in B&S Bar at 5:30pm. Skating by the Sea will be offered on The Del’s beachfront ice rink, $25 with free skate rentals – contingent on the rain. Fireworks and the Ice Show have unfortunately been canceled.

Gift wrapping for items purchased in The Del Shops that evening will be done in the Carousel Room by members of Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary – Coronado Unit, with all proceeds going to benefit the hospital.

Rain or shine, please join us for this Coronado family tradition!
