SoWa Winter Festival takes place at the iconic Power Station, an example of late-industrial glamour, that was built in 1896 being the world’s largest electric power plant at that time. You will see this unique space decorated with hundreds of lights and spreading some serious holiday spirit. Vendors are selling everything from homemade cookies to knitted hats and artsy Christmas trees.
