Light Up Your Holidays

Union Square Christmas Tree Lit up next to buildings

The day after Thanksgiving is often a day for holiday shopping, relaxing, and recuperating after a little too much turkey. It is also the official beginning of the Christmas season. November 23, 2018, is the date for Macy’s 29th Annual Great Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at Union Square. You and your family can be there when the lights come on for the first time this year. Union Square is only about 25 minutes from the Alpine Inn and Suites, and the drive is worth the looks on your loved ones faces as those twinkling lights fill the night. In addition to the incredible lighting ceremony, there will live musical performances from the San Francisco Boys’ Chorus, the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, and the San Francisco  Playhouse’s A Christmas Story: The Musical. Keep your eyes open for special visits from everyone’s favorite beagle, Snoopy, and the big man himself, Santa Claus.
