Embarcadero Center

Usher in the official start of the holiday season in San Francisco this weekend at the annual Embarcadero Center Lighting Ceremony and Carnival. The 33rd annual event returns to the waterfront with an ice skating rink, arts and crafts, a visit by Santa and Mrs. Claus and much more. At 6 p.m., over 17,000 holiday lights will illuminate the buildings of the Embarcadero Center with a little assistance from a lively fireworks show to welcome the holiday season with some flash and style.

How to Get There on Muni: Riders may take any Muni Metro line, the E Embarcadero or F Market and Wharves streetcar lines, any Market Street bus route, as well as the 1 California, 2 Clement, 10 Townsend, or 12 Folsom/Pacific routes to near the Embarcadero Center festivities.

Muni Service Notes: There are no planned service changes for this event.

"Snovember" on Treasure Island

Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Treasure Island

For the last TreasureFest of the 2019 season, there will be snow in San Francisco. 10 tons of the white stuff will be brought to Treasure Island as the focal point of this weekend's "snovember" event which will also feature over 400 local vendors of food, drink, arts and crafts and more.

How to Get There on Muni: Riders can take the 25 Treasure Island Route to and from the event.

Muni Service Notes: There are no planned service changes for this event.

Remember that you can take Muni for the entire day for a single $5 fare. The new $5 Day Pass, available on MuniMobile®, is part of Muni’s recent fare changes. The pass is intended to encourage a safe, convenient way to pay your fare and quickly board Muni vehicles, which reduces overall travel time for everyone. The $5 Day Pass is Muni bus, rail and historic streetcars only.

“On Tap” gives you a heads up about the big events in town and what Muni routes and lines will get you to the party. Look for this feature to be posted usually on Thursdays for a look ahead to the weekend. Check out our Weekend Traffic & Transit Advisory for more details.
