7th Makers Arcade Holiday Fair highlights

“We are excited to put together another festive holiday event,” said Kristin Dinnis, Makers Arcade co-owner and event coordinator. “This is our favorite time of the year to both shop small and support local creatives and most importantly, the small businesses in our community, while also enjoying the holiday spirit, San Diego-style.”

The pier will be decked out with fun holiday décor and create an incredibly special opportunity to shop while enjoying waterfront views.
