Christmas is right around the corner and there's no better way to get in the holiday spirit than going to walk the beautiful Trail of Lights in downtown Austin! This family friendly event goes from December 10th - 23rd so be sure to grab your tickets and loved ones to enjoy a magical night filled with holiday cheer!
"The AUSTIN TRAIL OF LIGHTS is Austin’s largest holiday tradition and 2nd largest event in the city. Run by the Trail of Lights Foundation, the annual event in Zilker Park celebrates the unique spirit and people that make Austin the place we love to call home.
The Austin Trail of Lights is a community event that invites 400,000 people every year to come celebrate the holidays in the heart of Austin, Texas during the month of December. The event showcases everything that we love about Austin—from music and food to creativity and family fun. Thanks to the Trail of Lights Foundation, we are able to keep it free for at least ½ of the nights to make sure that anyone who wants to be part of the experience has a way to do so."
"The Austin Trail of Lights began in 1965 as a small gathering known as the “Yule Fest.” What began as a gift to the city of Austin from Austin Parks and Recreation Department, has now gown to be a community-wide celebration of the spirit and people that make Austin unique. In the 53 years since the first Yule Log was lit, the Trail of Lights has expanded to more than 65 displays, 2 million lights and holiday activities that create countless memories. Each new display, community performance and lighted tunnel has added a new layer to the holiday tradition and brought us together more as a community. Today, the Trail of Lights is one of the three largest events in Austin and receives national accolades while remaining a deeply cherished local tradition. Learn more about the Trail of Lights Foundation."
Chris and I try to make it to the trail every year and we usually prefer to go on a week night to try and skip the major crowds that you will experience on a Friday or Saturday night but it's still totally worth it! I hope you all make it out and have a wonderful time at this local Austin tradition!
