Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!’
11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. The Old Globe
A longstanding tradition at The Old Globe, ‘Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!’ is running at the venue at Balboa Park through Dec. 29. This Saturday, there are three performances: 11 a.m.; 2 p.m.; 5 p.m. This sweet adaption of the story of Cindy Lou Who, Whoville, and how the little girl and the happy town helped the Grinch’s heart grow, is known for its colorful sets and whimsical music.
6 p.m., Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego
Catch a jolly screening of the 2003 Will Ferrell flick about Buddy the Elf on the scenic rooftop at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. The screening is part of the hotel’s ongoing Rooftop Cinema Club – movies shown under the stars, set alongside stunning views of the San Diego skyline. Tickets start at $17 per movie; you can self-park in the hotel’s garage for four hours for free if you buy food (other than popcorn or candy) or drinks at the Rooftop Cinema Club.

Guided Nature Walk
9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., Mission Trails Regional Park
Start your Sunday with a little nature walk at Mission Trails Regional Park. A trail guide will take visitors through one of three trails – the Oak Grove Loop, the Visitor Center Loop, or the Riverside Grinding Rocks – while talking about the plants, animals, geology, history, and ecology of the park. These weekly guided walks are free and open to the public and begin at the Visitor Center. Wear sturdy shoes and bring water, a hat, and sunscreen. Rain cancels the walk.
Gaslamp Artisan Market
10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Gaslamp Quarter (Fifth Avenue)
Peruse more than 30 local artisans offering carefully-curated, handmade products at this weekly outdoor market in the Gaslamp Quarter. The Gaslamp Artisan Market sets up shop every Sunday on Fifth Avenue, between Market Street and Island Avenue.
