Join us for the Grossmont Center Kids Club in the Food Court Patio.

Enjoy a live performance from Hullabaloo from 10am-11am. Then, enjoy Story Time with Traveling Stories from 10am-12pm.

About Traveling Stories:
Kids visit the StoryTent, pick out a book that interests them, and then read it out loud to a volunteer. The volunteer asks engaging questions that help the child build reading comprehension and critical thinking skills. If a child doesn’t know how to read yet, the volunteer will read to them.

Kids earn a book buck for every book they read. If a book is especially long or challenging, they can negotiate with the volunteer for more book bucks. The bucks can be used by a variety of prizes. Through this book buck system we teach kids basic financial literacy skills.

The focus of the StoryTent is creating positive experiences associated with reading, developing strong critical thinking skills and building trust with the families who visit the program.

Grossmont Center is more than a mall—it’s a vibrant, lively community gathering spot in La Mesa with plenty of things to do both day and night.

The center also hosts community-focused events such as pet adoptions and blood drives. In addition to center-wide celebrated events, our stores, restaurants, and specialty tenants also host their own unique happenings and programs throughout the year, which enhances the Grossmont Center experience. Whatever the event is, you’re sure to have a great time! Round up the kids, bring along your pet dog, get a group of friends together, or plan a date night and enjoy all that Grossmont Center has to offer!

We have a vibrant lineup of events throughout the year at Grossmont Center, and some are especially popular and have become beloved traditions in the community. Kids enjoy our annual Easter Egg Hunt, which offers plenty of excitement with crafts, balloon animals, and other holiday activities. In October, adorable ghosts, princesses, and other magical creatures come to Trick-or-Treat Around the Center for a family-friendly Halloween celebration. During winter, ‘tis the season to celebrate at Grossmont Center’s HolidayFest with Santa and his elves, a gingerbread bounce house, holiday crafts, and much more. Three times a year, the Center partners with the San Diego Animal Support Foundation to present major pet adoption events: Cupids & Canines, Dog Days of Summer, and Howl-O-Ween Hounds.
