Mid-City Holiday Bridge Lighting Ceremony

December 7, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Holiday Bridge Lighting Ceremony

Please join us at the El Cajon Boulevard Transit Plaza (at SR-15) next Wednesday, December 7th at 5PM for the annual lighting of the holiday bridge lights on the 805 and 15 bridges. Santa will be there to celebrate with fellow community members and leaders.

The El Cajon Boulevard Business Improvement Association has overseen the Mid-City holiday bridge lighting project for most of its history. The nine bridge light program is a joint effort by the Adams Avenue, El Cajon Boulevard, North Park and City Heights Business Improvement Associations. Initiated in 1988 by the Adams Avenue Business Association, the holiday lighting has inspired similar displays in other locations here in San Diego and attracted attention throughout Southern California.

In 2018 the El Cajon Boulevard Transit Plaza over the SR15 freeway was also added to the program. In 2021 the City Heights Plaza Transit on University Avenue over SR15 was added with funding from the City Heights Business Association.

We would like to thank all our partners who have helped the project over the years, including the City and County and CalTrans District 11, who continually work with us to keep power on at the bridges.

We hope you can all join us to celebrate this long-running community tradition.
