Miniature Holiday Snow Village at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero

The miniature Holiday Village has returned to the Hyatt in San Francisco near the Embarcadero.

A San Francisco tradition, the display was gone for over two years after the death of the previous owner of the display. Because the display is not owned by the hotel it required years to find another kind soul and hobbyist who could dedicate the days needed to set up the display.

Fortunately one was located, and the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero celebrated with chocolate treats and man made snowfall in the hotel lobby.
