Trail of Lights Festival in Austin Texas

Trail of Lights Festival in Austin Texas

The Trail of Lights Festival is an annual Austin holiday tradition and celebration held in Zilker Metropolitan Park, 2100 Barton Springs Rd. The festival, originally known as Yule Fest, began in 1965 by Mrs. Alden Mabel Davis and then Parks and Recreation Director, Beverly Sheffield, as a holiday gift from the Parks and Recreation Department to the citizens of Austin and visitors. The first display, "The Twelve Days of Christmas", was set up in Zilker Park. This display still holds a prominent location on the Trail this year and has become a big part of the deep tradition of the Trail.

Opening night for the Trail is December 14th 2009 and starts with a parade at 6:30 pm.
