Austin is lucky enough to be the home for Zilker Park, a place where music festivals, dog parties, and much more take place. While Austin City Limits is up there on the list of most exciting things Zilker Park hosts, there's one event that may just take the cake. This event, where Christmas lights feel like they fill the entire city of Austin with their beauty, has been held every December in ATX for the past 54 years, and it's coming back for it's 55th better than any year before.
This year, the highly-anticipated Austin Trail of Lights is back again with some new goodies in store for us. Starting on Tuesday, December 10, Trail of Lights will be in Zilker until Monday, December 23. Tickets are going on sale early next month, and range in price depending on what you're looking for! Some nights are free, so keep your eyes out for an opportunity to save on admission and splurge on all the tasty food and cute merch they'll have.
Ask any Austinite and they'll agree, Austin Trail of Lights is something they look forward to every year. It's perfect for families, friends, or a night out with your S/O. When you arrive at Zilker, it's almost like you're not at the same place you've taken your dog to a million times. But you are! Every year this event puts smiles on each of the thousands of faces that come to see it. If you haven't been, hopefully we're convincing you that this year it's a must!
We can't wait to experience any new addition Austin Trail of Lights is bringing with them this year. There's always good food, stunning exhibits, incredible music, and so much more. Whatever is in store for us this year, we know we won't be disappointed!
