On Sunday, November 18th, the Union Square Partnership hosted “Happy Pawlidays” in Union Square Park in partnership with Compass. To celebrate the opening of the Union Square Holiday Market, the Union Square Partnership provided free holiday portraits to over 130 groups. Many included their four-legged best friends, who also picked up free holiday treats as part of the Happy Pawlidays festivities.
Thank you to all who came out, and don’t forget to tag your portraits on social media with #USQHoliday.
