Kicking off the Holiday Season at the Family Holiday Festival

Family Holiday Festival

Jeep, in partnership with Military AutoSource were proud sponsors at this year’s Family Holiday Festival on Saturday, 3 December 2022 at Naval Base San Diego.

This annual MWR event is the kick-off to the holiday season and was filled with so much to do and see for children and adults.

Jeep at Family Holiday Festival

Thousands of families came out to take part in the festivities including Santa’s village, a jingle bell jog, snow sledding, face painting, amusement rides, inflatable rides, and much more.

Spreading Holiday Cheer

As attendees walked through to the entrance to Santa’s village, they were able to get an up-close look and take pictures with a brand new Jeep Gladiator on display all decked out in reindeer attire.
