SAN DIEGO—Get ready for a day of play and educational fun at the 17th annual Fall Back Festival in downtown San Diego.
This free children’s historical street faire is in the heart of downtown’s Gaslamp Quarter, with the lively festivities taking place on November 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in front of the William Heath Davis House, spanning 4th Avenue between Market Street and J Street and Island Avenue between 4th and 5th Avenues.
Take a stroll down the historical streets of the Gaslamp Quarter and fall back into the city’s wild past of the 1880’s. The whole family can experience the magical old-fashioned atmosphere that is brought to life each year. It is the perfect way to make history fun, yet educational. Kids can saddle up for pony rides, learn to churn butter, dip their own candles, and pan for gold with real prospectors.
Discover the fun side of history with a Wild West Show, blacksmith demonstrations, and other interactive activities all-ages will love. There are also multiple educational opportunities by visiting one of the cultural booths and learn about different nationalities and how they have contributed to the diverse fabric that makes up the city. Kids and adults can also enter into one of our spaghetti-, pie-, or ice cream-eating contests for a chance to win some prizes. T
