Tree Lighting Ceremony -

On Friday, November 29th, San Franciscans and tourists alike will join together to see the Great Tree Lighting Ceremony at Macy’s Union Square Park. As always, the annual celebration will feature live music and an appearance by Santa Claus. This year, Judith Hill from NBC’s The Voice will headline the event. Hill will be joined by the San Francisco Boy’s Choir, the Glide Ensemble, Artists in Resonance, and Make-A-Wish Ambassador Shelby Miguel. The night will conclude with a ceremonial countdown led by Santa himself.
