6:00-8:00 p.m. After turkey dinners and Thanksgiving travel, you can kick-start the Christmas season with a merry celebration. Much like the world-famous tree in NYC's Rockefeller Center, this West Coast tradition lights up an enormous evergreen in the center of San Francisco. Come to Union Square Park just a block from the King George Hotel, and look for the inaugural illumination at 333 Post Street, right across from the Macy's storefront. At the turn of a switch, the magnificent tree will twinkle with eye-catching color. The energetic event also features live music and dance performances along with special appearances by names you're sure to know. The tree lighting ceremony is also adjacent to the outdoor ice skating rink, where guests of all ages can glide around in a wintery wonderland. It's a perfect scene for the season, whether you're looking for fun for the whole family or a romantic evening for two. As long as you're in Union Square, you won't want to miss the premier shopping scene. Black Friday's door-buster bargains are the best way to make a dent in your holiday shopping list. Shop today's hottest trends and high fashions in the heart of San Francisco, and take the stress out of your December to-do list. You'll come across everything on your loved ones' wish lists, along with unique local flavors perfect for stocking stuffers. Book reservations at King George Hotel soon, and get cozy in our charming European-styled boutique hotel. We're conveniently located just a short stroll away from all the festive fun in Union Square.
