The holidays are anything but ordinary in the beach community of Coronado. From the bikini-clad ice skaters at the beautiful ice rink at Hotel del Coronado, an annual tradition, to the special events such as the Parade and Holiday Open House, get ready to celebrate Christmas in one of the most special places in the world!
The excitement begins when Santa sails into the Ferry Landing and leads the festive parade along Orange Avenue. Santa lights the 75-foot star pine in Coronado's center, the town band plays, and the streets are lighted and open for shopping and festivities.
Coronado is all about traditions and once again the Coronado Tourism Improvement District (CTID) participates in the Holiday Open House Parade. The Open House begins at 3:30pm when Santa arrives at Snow Mountain at Coronado Ferry Landing. Afterwards, Santa will host the annual parade that winds through Coronado's downtown business district.
