Since 1991. 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 Victorians, transforming Union Street into a magical backdrop for Santa and a team of elves to celebrate along with jugglers, live ponies dressed as reindeer, face painters, balloon artists, costumed characters, singers and live entertainment. See Union Street, holiday style, and hop on the Union Street Holiday Horse Drawn Carriage Ride, fun for the whole family! Come to the Union Street Holiday House, 2071 Union Street, and decorate a cupcake from 3:00-5:30 PM! Santa will arrive at the Union Street Holiday House, 2071 Union Street, at 5:30 where he will sit available for pictures until 7:00 PM. Donate toys for needy children through the SF Firefighters Toy Program. Collection barrels will be available on Union Street at the event and throughout the holiday. This is truly a holiday tradition that should not be missed.
