The Union Square Icebreaker opening ceremony is one of San Francisco’s most highly anticipated holiday activities.

We performed some favorites from the “Cool Christmas” section of Michael Smuin’s treasured holiday spectacular, “Winter Weather” and “Blue Christmas.”

The ice rink opening also coincided with San Francisco’s city-wide celebration #LoveLocalSF that honored what makes SF unique.
