This is unprecedented.
This is the City Family extending the Market Street lighted Christmas snowflake zone all the way to Mid-Market.

They used to stop at 5th Street, but now they don’t – they go farther this year.
Won’t this please our corporate overlords at Twitter? (Probably not, but, you know, can’t hurt to try.)
All right, come to the annual lighting ceremony with the Mayor this Thursday evening, if you want:
“Snowflakes on Market – Lighting Ceremony
Nov. 17, 2011 through mid-January 2012
More than 140 five-foot-wide energy-saving LED illuminated snowflakes will decorate Market Street’s signature “Path of Gold” light poles this winter from Second to Sixth streets. A lighting ceremony, featuring dancers from the San Francisco Ballet’s Nutcracker, is scheduled for Nov. 17 at 6 p.m. near the cable car turnaround at Powell and Market streets. The event is free and open to the public. For information, visit www.marketstreetassociation.org.
It will go a little something like this, probably.
Dixitque Gavin fiat lux, et facta est lux:
Those are Nutcracker-starring “Snowflakes” from the San Francisco Ballet. (The run starts up again December 9th this year.) Jessica Carter is the snowflake in the middle, so I’m told.
