Everyone comes out for the Union Street Fantasy of Lights Holiday celebration – jugglers, face painters, balloon artists, Santa, elves from the North Pole, and even ponies dressed up like reindeer! Enjoy a full day of festive holiday fun at this annual event, which takes place this year on Saturday, December 3. Thousands of twinkling lights transform the neighborhood into a magical winter backdrop, as stately Victorian homes sparkle and shine like the smiles of the children below. Mingle with costumed holiday characters, listen to live entertainment, decorate Christmas ornaments, and join in the caroling fun. You'll also find free, horse-drawn carriage rides plus special promotions at local shops and restaurants. Don't forget to bring a new toy to donate to the SF Firefighters Toy Program.
The Union Street Fantasy of Lights begins at 3 pm, and Santa will be available for pictures until 7 pm. Stay nearby at our boutique hotel, and celebrate the best of the holiday season. Our convenient central location is near fun nightlife, exciting shopping, delicious restaurants, and festive San Francisco events.
