Last month, a six-block stretch of El Cajon Boulevard (between Euclid and Highland) in City Heights was officially designated “Little Saigon Cultural and Commercial District,” highlighting a neighborhood where nearly three-quarters of businesses are owned by Vietnamese-Americans.

From Friday, July 19 through Sunday, July 21, The San Diego Lantern Festival celebrates Little Saigon’s heritage with food, vendors, carnival rides, lion dances, street performers, and the lighting of 6,000 lanterns.

The event is expected to draw 10,000 - 15,000 attendees to Hoover High School (4474 El Cajon Boulevard) over the course of three days.

Tickets are $5 for adults and $4 for children.
