The Presidio of San Francisco - tree lighting ceremony 12/7/18

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

'Tis the season for tree lighting ceremonies. In San Francisco the trees have been lit at Huntington Square atop Nob Hill. A tree at Ghiradelli Square has been decorated and lights turned on.

If you missed those events, or if you simply love the joy and festivity of tree lighting ceremonies, here's one not to miss, in the beautiful Presidio of San Francisco.

Date and Time: Friday, 12/7/18, 5:30 - 7:00 PM

Location: Main Post, Lincoln Blvd and Funston Avenue, San Francisco

Cost: FREE

Join the group at the Main Post, across from the Presidio Community Y. Light the tree, sing holiday classics along with the Golden Gate Carolers. Light refreshments and kids activities will follow in the Presidio Community Y gymnasium.

After the tree lighting, a guided lantern-lit evening forest walk through the beautiful forested areas of the Presidio is being offered, starting at 6:00 PM. Walking through the Presidio always refreshes and delights me, day or night, and a lantern-lit walk sounds the the perfect ending to a festive event.

When in San Fran we drove through the Presido and my husband got to play golf there. It was quite beautiful and felt like it was from another time. Christmas lights would be perfect.

Hi Lottie Kendall - What a lovely home! With the lights on it looks so charming and beautiful! Christmas will be here before we know it. I hope you are enjoying the season of lights.

Hi Debbie Reynolds - the club house at the Presidio Golf Club made a great venue for a client party a couple of years ago. The whole Presidio is a gem. I still am sorry I couldn't meet up with you when you were here last year. My loss!

Many the buildings on the Presidio are very historic--the house pictured had been a military officer's house, probably dating back to the late 1800s. Lots of lights are springing up everywhere.

Hi Brian England - more and more holiday lights are showing up on houses in the area. It's fun to look for excuses to be out and about around 5:00-6:00PM in the evenings. I'd enjoy seeing pictures of lights, and how houses are decorated in your part of AZ.

Good morning, Roy Kelley - I like sharing information about some of the lesser-known events and attractions in and around San Francisco. They are what keep the neighborhood feel alive and well.

HI Lottie... no doubt that cities like SF are magical at Christmas time when lit up for the Christmas holiday.

San Francisco is really sparkling, Nina Hollander with more and more lights going up each day. I suspect Charlotte is much the same.

Hi Lottie! Oh, that is another wonderful event that I would most certainly enjoy! I hope you have this one on your calendar too! The lantern-lit walk through the forest would be the highlight for me.

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS - yes, I'm planning to go to the Presidio this Friday evening, and the lantern-lit forest walk is what I'm most looking forward to. Funny, I told my husband several times in the last couple of weeks that when I'm out hiking more, I'd love to take a moonlit hike in the Presidio (I'm not sure he "gets" me!)

LOL I'll bet after all these years, he does, Lottie! They're just not always the best at expressing that! Enjoy your hike...

The Presidio tree-lighting was a fun event last Friday, Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 . I especially enjoyed taking a lantern-lit walk in the forest afterward.

I used to ride my bike through the Presidio regularly when I lived in the City.  In fact, I did so last year when I was up there.  It's a little known gem in the City.  I used to love the Union Square area at Christmas.  Sometimes I really miss that City.  Thank you for the post Lottie.

Hi Jerry Murphy, CRS, SRES - The Presidio is a gem! I love hiking and exploring there. Did you know that musical events, lectures, talks etc. are held weekly at Moraga Hall in the Officers' Club? And that they are FREE? On Jan. 26 we'll hear the Marcus Shelby Jazz Quartet.

Sounds like you're ready for a visit here!

I had the pleasure of visiting the Bay area during the holidays one year. There is just something about lights, right? The Presidio is very special as you mention.

The Presidio has become one of my very favorite places, Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD , whether hiking the wooded trails, soaking up the sun and vistas, working at Moraga Hall (which I'll be doing later this morning), dining or listening to great music -- it's truly a treasure that gets better day by day.
