Macy's gift to the City of San Francisco - Macy's 24th Annual Tree Lighting will take place in Union Square Park between Sutter and Post and Geary and Stockton Streets, right across from the front of Macy's.
It's a great day for Christmas shopping as many sales are geared to this special day.
For Best Viewing
For the best viewing location, stop by Union Square early to stake out your spot. One tip is to manage to get a spot at the Cheesecake Factory - top of Macy's which looks down over Union Square. They have outdoor dining with heat lamps and the view to the ice rink and skaters is spectacular.
The ceremony is expected to begin at 6pm and the tree is scheduled to be lit at 6:40pm.
