What is Holiday Tree Lighting at the McClaren Lodge (from sfrecpark website)

Carols, snow play, holiday lights and of course, Santa… it’s become one of the city’s most anticipated holiday events— the annual tree lighting at McLaren Lodge in Golden Gate Park. This December, join us as we celebrate the 87th year of this tradition of lighting “Uncle” John McLaren’s tree, Thursday, December 1, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Free!

What are we doing?

A number of our staff and volunteer photographers visited the Tree Lighting Event to document the holiday cheer. On December 7, photos taken during the event will be displayed and available for download below.
