History of the Holidays with Gary Holloway

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

The City of Saratoga Recreation Department Great Getaways Program offers trips for all ages, except where noted. San Francisco is always a special place to be during the holidays, and on this day trip, Gary Holloway will show us various places around the city that have been historically associated with longtime holiday traditions. While many stores and hotels no longer decorate for this season, Gary will take us to famed places that many older San Franciscans remember as important parts of their childhoods. We'll visit the old Emporium building (remember Santa Claus on the roof?), Podesta Baldocchi florist shop, and the official City Christmas tree in Golden Gate Park. For lunch, we'll have a full English Holiday Tea at the Sip Tea Room on Lincoln Way near Golden Gate Park. We hope to see you at this special trip down memory lane in San Francisco!
