It wouldn’t be the holiday season in Austin without a visit to the famous Trail of Lights! Now in its 55th year of existence, the Austin Trail of Lights powered by H-E-B gets more festive every year. Tonight is the grand opening for the general public and it’s going to be lit. ; )
If you can’t make it tonight don’t worry,  the Trail runs through the 23rd. ZIP Passes are a favorite of families and small groups, especially on busier nights. You’ll be close to the action and you’ll stay cozy in the heated ZIP hospitality tents. You also get to enjoy the festive lineup of nightly entertainment on the Zilker Stage. Skip the lines and enter early! You’ll thank us later.
And if you really want to make things extra merry this year, go Platinum with concierge service and a VIP experience. You and your guests can hang in a private lounge with lots of amenities like comfortable seating and an exclusive bar! It’s the ultimate venue for a holiday party. Spring for this one and you’ll be as beloved as Santa this year!
When: December 10th-23rd
Time: 7–10 p.m. nightly

In her previous life, Kristy was an uninspired realtor who was feeling a little bit bored with her day to day. So on January 1, 2010, she made a New Year’s resolution to write about one thing to do each day in her beloved city of Austin, Texas. And thus, 365 Things Austin was born.
