The 20th Annual Lighting of The Forward House takes place on Thanksgiving night. Walk or drive by any night thru New Year’s Eve to view this wonderful holiday display with music from 5 – 10 pm. Located 5 blocks W of Balboa Park – 3 blocks S of Laurel Street.

The Forward House got its ‘moniker’ after it was built in 1905 for John Forward Sr, (Mayor of San Diego 1907-1909), his wife and 7 children. American Security Mortgage acquired the former mayor’s home in 1998, and in that year began the Annual Lighting tradition - adorning the house with tens of thousands of lights celebrating the holiday season.
