No need to travel downtown to see a festive holiday tree lighting ceremony. The Marina Community Association is presenting its inaugural Marina Holiday Tree Lighting Festival, which looks like it will be a family-friendly event with lots of activities.
It will take place Friday, Dec. 14, 3–8 p.m., near the Harbor Master’s Office (3950 Scott Street) on the Marina Green. Besides the tree lighting, it will feature live music, face painters, carolers, food trucks, demonstrations by the Fire Department, free yoga (courtesy of CorePower Yoga), and a Santa Claus. And when you just get too tired of all of the holiday hoopla, that’s what the beer and wine lounge is for.
Attendance is free, though MCA is welcoming donations for its holiday tree lighting. You can RSVP at sfmca.org.
