Sparkly snowflakes return to Market Street for the holidays

The holiday season will officially kick off on San Francisco’s Market Street Tuesday evening with the annual lighting of the snowflakes.

At 6:30 p.m. Tuesday evening a lighting ceremony will take place at the Powell Street cable car turnaround. Live music will kick off the festivities, followed by speeches from  Barbara Hale, Assistant General Manager, SF Public Utilities Commission; Mohammed Nuru, Director, San Francisco Department of Public Works, and CA State Assembly Member David Chiu. Spencer Christian from Channel 7 news will be presiding over the ceremony.

The 298 snowflakes will light up the street from now through Jan. 1, decorating 149 historic Path of Gold lampposts, which stretch from Beale to Ninth streets.
