Trail of Lights

Trail of Lights with the Austin skyline in the background (thanks Coach Tracy!)

The city of Austin puts on the Trail of Lights at Zilker Park (Barton Springs) every year. You get to walk through the park covered in tons of Christmas lights and scenes.the entrance
Lights swagged around one of the big trees near the entrance. Many businesses in Austin did displays.
The Austin Fire Department wrapped a tree in red and orange lights so it looked like it was on fire, my picture really doesn't do it justice. They also had Santa's fire sleigh.
Austin Water had a display with clouds and lightening, then a rainbow, then clouds with the sun coming up behind them. A river of lights ran around the entire display.
We liked this tree covered in blue lights
I liked the dancing cupcakes
and "dilloville" with armadillos and cacti

The BIG tree of lights is really cool, you can see it from miles away. It looks even cooler when you go directly underneath it. But the camera battery died before we could get a picture underneath the tree. Update: Coach Tracy sent me these pictures of the big tree of lights. Thanks! and Great Job!
This is what it looks like under the tree, then you spin around and it looks like the picture below. Everyone was spinning, adults, kids, everyone. Of course it made me dizzy really fast.
