The 2012 Trail of Lights was named one of the Top 10 lighting festivals in the country by USA Today.
The Trail of Lights Foundation will be responsible and inclusive stewards of the annual Trail of Lights events which exceed expectations through accountable and ethical practice and by setting a high standard for public/private partnerships.
The weather wasn't wonderful when we went out, but we did canoe around the Colorado River anyway. One of my favorite parks in the country.
This is ONLY around in December. It's a huge attraction and is so much fun, for all ages. There is a Ferris wheel and many places to get snacks. I highly recommend doing this, if you're in Austin during December. Bring a jacket, it's usually cold.
The Trail of Lights was a great after-dinner activity. We walked over from the restaurant (Shady Grove) and meandered through the light displays. We even saw an Airstream that was renovated to house an Krispy Kreme food truck. Great lights! We have to go back next week to spin around under the Christmas tree (advice from a local).
