2020 Winter Lights Around The Bay

Posted By on November 27, 2020

Lift your spirits with dazzling lights as The Bay Area shines for the holidays!

Winter is coming. The holidays are just around the corner and we all could use a little extra holiday cheer to lift our spirits and start looking forward to the new year (and the end of 2020).

While big tree lighting events and holiday festivals are mostly cancelled for this year or have gone virtual, you can still find plenty of twinkling holiday lights around The Bay to help you get into the holiday spirit.

New for 2020 – Pickup some gifts at the festive holiday market, and then take a self-guided Christmas Tree Stroll to see beautiful trees decorated by the talented students at the Academy of Art, up throughout the holiday season. *Please note, we haven’t confirmed if they’ll be lit, but what kind of Christmas tree doesn’t have lights? The square will also be decked out in holiday lights, starting on 11/27.

Ghirardelli Square’s Iconic Sign Lights Up

New for 2020 – The iconic 19-foot-tall, 152-foot-wide “Ghirardelli Square” sign recently returned to the square after a refresh with newly installed LED lighting that will allow for special colors whenever needed for the holidays or for special events or honors. We hope this means the sign will illuminate red and green for Christmas, and blue and white for Hanukkah.
