Christmas Tree Traditions

Even with the rapidly changing life of today, some Christmas traditions never change, and Balboa Island has a lot of them.  Our Christmas Tree is schedule to arrive on Friday, November 27 at the Marine Avenue Fire Station.  Christmas trees have been a part of Balboa Christmas for generations. Today shared community Christmas trees are a common sight in many public buildings, shops, streets and churches on Balboa Island.
