Holiday season kicks off with ‘Disney on Ice’

The Embarcadero Center is inviting visitors to get a head start on the holiday season today with its annual building lighting ceremony and a special performance of “Disney On Ice: Worlds of Fantasy.”

Before the show, families are invited to enjoy a winter carnival at the shopping complex; games, arts and crafts, card making, balloon twisters and Santa will be on hand. Retailers are offering gift ideas and some discounts on merchandise, and the center is providing free parking starting at 4 p.m.

The ceremony, in which 17,000 lights will illuminate the center’s office towers, is at 6 p.m., followed by “Worlds of Fantasy,” which features characters from Disney classics such as “Tinker Bell” and “The Little Mermaid.”
