Enjoy the winter season in San Francisco's urban national park. The highlight of the season is Holiday Lights, the Presidio's traditional tree lighting ceremony, which will be held on Friday, December 8 at 5 pm. Other holiday events include cooking demonstration of a Cinderella Pumpkin Tortellini with Rogelio Garcia, Chef of The Commissary restaurant who will be a participant in Bravo's Top Chef Season 15, which airs in December; a Holiday Sing-Along at the Presidio Officers' Club; and a Holidays at Carolwood Exhibit sponsored by the Walt Disney Family Museum. See website for complete schedule.
The annual Presidio tree-lighting ceremony is a great way to plunge into the holidays, with the Golden Gate Carolers performing at 5 pm, a tree-lighting at 5:30, light refreshments and fun family activities at the Presidio Y Gym until 6:30, and a lantern-lit forest walk capping the evening off.
