With November here, many begin to feel like the holiday season is here. At Stanford Court we believe the best way to get in the spirit of the holidays is to attend the Union Square Tree Lighting. Here are some details about this year’s event:
2016 Union Square Tree Lighting
Macy’s 27th Annual Great Tree Lighting Ceremony
Union Square | San Francisco
Saturday, November 25, 2016 – 6pm
All are invited to this free event! The Macy’s 27th Annual Tree Lighting will take place in Union Square Park between Sutter and Post and Geary and Stockton Streets, right across from the front of Macy’s. The beautiful and reusable tree will be decorated with more than 33,000 twinkling energy-efficient LED lights and 1,100 shining ornaments.
For the best viewing location, stop by Union Square early to stake out your spot. One tip is to manage to get a spot at the Cheesecake Factory – top of Macy’s which looks down over Union Square. They have outdoor dining with heat lamps and the view to the ice rink and skaters is spectacular.
The ceremony is expected to begin at 6pm and the tree is scheduled to be lit at 6:40pm.
