This Sunday, Union Square Partnership is kicking off the holiday season with Picture Perfect Union Square – providing free holiday photos in the Pavilion building in the park’s North Plaza.  Families, couples, and the photo-inclined can sign up to have holiday portraits taken for free.   A photo print out will be provided on-site.  At the event you will also receive link to hi-quality web download (watermark-free) so you can use your photos for holiday mailings.  Did we mention that this event is free for participants? You will not be asked to purchase your portraits later!   Isn’t USP the best?  There will be treats by Mighty Pie, Holiday Carolers, and hot chocolate from the amazing Amedei Chocolate store. Although all registered spots filled up just hours after being posted, a wait list available (and you also can’t miss out on the previously mentioned goodies).
