If you are planning a trip for a La Jolla Thanksgiving, there are several events going on around the city for you and your family. While a day at the beach is always an option, here are some activities you can check out.
Mother Goose Parade
The Mother Goose Parade is San Diego county’s kick-off celebration for Thanksgiving. The parade is the largest of its kind east of the Mississippi and each year it attracts thousands of guests. The parade includes floats, marching bands, horses, giant balloons, celebrities, entertainers, Santa Clause, and much more. The parade is held in downtown El Cajon, which is just a 25-minute drive east of La Jolla. This year’s parade will be held on November 18 at 1 p.m.
San Diego Thanksgiving Dixieland Jazz Festival
The Thanksgiving Dixieland Jazz Festival is held every year over the weekend of Thanksgiving. The festival is known as the crown gem of jazz festivals and features bands playing everything from traditional jazz to swing, Dixieland, ragtime, and rockabilly. This year’s festival will be held at the Town & Country Resort and Convention Center on November 21 – 25. You can purchase tickets for a single day or for the whole weekend.
Where to Eat Dinner
If you are looking for a place to eat on Thanksgiving, there are several restaurants in the city that will be serving a special holiday dinner.
The Marine Room is one of the best choices for a high-class La Jolla Thanksgiving dinner. The restaurant has breathtaking views of the ocean and is one of the best restaurants in La Jolla. They serve a special menu on Thanksgiving that includes turkey, center-cut Angus steak, and Red Walnut salmon. The restaurant will be open from 12 p.m. – 7 p.m. on Thanksgiving but it does get busy, so it is recommended to make a reservation ahead of time.
Duke’s La Jolla will also be serving a special Thanksgiving Dinner. This dinner will be more of a traditional Thanksgiving meal. However, the outdoor seating on the patio offers amazing views of the ocean and Duke’s is offering one of the most affordable Thanksgiving dinners in the city.
