The Trail of Lights has now been merged with the tree into the "Zilker Tree Holiday Festival"

Welcome to the Zilker Tree Holiday Festival. The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department is joining efforts with the entire family of City of Austin Departments to bring you a quality holiday event. The department is not charging an entry fee this year because we recognize the hardship that many families are dealing with during this difficult economic time. We have also reduced the parking fee from $15 to $10 dollars per car.

The event has been scaled back from the traditional event scope and will be hosted around the Zilker Tree. The department has worked enthusiastically to produce a beautiful holiday village. There will be a Santa’s House, a half mile lighted pedestrian oriented area, nightly entertainment, fun and concessions for the entire family! Our goal is to continue to provide a venue for families to create wonderful memories with their loved ones. We hope you will enjoy this year’s festival.

It's a mob scene at Zilker this time of year.  Haven't been brave enough to take the kids down there yet.
