At the strike of noon on Saturday 16th, five distinct rings will echo across Mission Valley casting away evil and calling the good-spirited to… a garden party with a bishop!? The Festival of Bells commemorates the Mission San Diego’s founding with a weekend for the whole family, including furry, feathered, and cold-blooded members. Bless your animals and nourish your soul with great cuisine, live entertainment, children activities, and dancing are striking all day. The Mission awaits a heavenly tone; the bishop anoints all even the mariachi tunes!
