Holly Jolly Christmas

The 2014 Encinitas Holiday Parade lit up South Coast Highway 101 with over 100 festive floats, bands, and thousands of people in Christmas attire singing, cheering, and celebrating for the special occasion. The highly anticipated hometown tradition has become a favorite event for Encinitas residents of all ages and always manages to bring Christmas cheer and laughs to the city. This year’s theme, “Droppin’ In for the Holidays” celebrated Encinitas’ reputation as the mecca for action sports. Plenty of big name surfers, skateboarders, snowboarders, and more were in attendance, with many entering the parade. Encinitas local Tony Hawk was present riding atop a 35-foot skateboard! The floats reflected this year’s theme, with categories including Best Representation of Community and Best Representation of the Year 1986.
