Union Street Hosts 20th Annual Fantasy of Lights Holiday Celebration December 4th


On December 4, Union Street kicks off its annual Fantasy of Lights Holiday celebration, where young and old alike can enjoy festivities to begin the holiday season. Thousands of holiday lights set off the Victorian houses along the street, transforming Union Street into a magical backdrop for Santa and a team of elves to celebrate along with jugglers, live ponies dressed as reindeer, a monkey, face painters and balloon artists.

This highly anticipated Holiday Celebration brings a wealth of holiday-related entertainment to Cow Hollow, one of San Francisco’s most beautiful historic neighborhoods.

Throughout November and December, the stores lining Union Street will add festive holiday lights to their buildings and trees setting the stage for a magical season.
