On Friday, November 24 from 5:30 pm-7:00 pm, and a little closer to Trinity Place, the 83-foot tall tree with more than 43,000 twinkling energy-efficient LED lights will illuminate Union Square. Stop by Starbucks on Powell and O’Farrell or grab dinner at Cheesecake Factory and try to score a seat on their patio, it offers one of the best views.

P.S. the tree will be lit closer to 7 pm so get there early!

Cost: FREE
