The pandemic hasn't entirely put a damper on festivities in the Castro, as the annual holiday tree was put up last week near the intersection of Castro and 18th streets and was promptly used as a backdrop for selfies by passersby. The Castro Merchants group decided to go ahead with the tree, but did not have a lighting ceremony with music, Santa, and his sexy elves this year due to the health crisis. Businesses are hoping for shoppers and outdoor diners in spite of an uptick in COVID-19 cases that placed the city in the most restrictive purple tier over the weekend.
