Honoring the light brigade


At the Marina Times, we have been touting the great holiday lights display of Union Street for a long time. It is one of the gems of the city, and each year we hope more people will come to see it.

But it’s not just us saying this. For the second year in a row, the Union Street Association was awarded First Place Winner of the 2014 Neighborhood Holiday Lighting Promotion sponsored by San Francisco Travel. Union Street businesses were singled out in the category “For beautifying our city streets during the holidays, helping to create a sense of destination for visitors.” Along with the proclamation came a $2,500 check and a year’s free dues for the Union Street Association, which is a longtime member of San Francisco Travel. Congratulations to everyone who made it happen!

And did we mention that Union Street is a great place to visit even inbetween holidays?
