Don't forget to get parking ahead of time. I did not check on it before hand and was stuck looking for parking to get inside park.

Buy your tickets at the shuttle tents and take the bus into the park. The shuttle did not want to use the groupon so I end up buying two sets of tickets to get to Zilker park. It is to many workers not all knowing what is going on. Forget the groupon it NO SAVINGS!

Go early. Parking lot reaches full capacity far before 7 pm. The lights, show, and food choices are great.

From Our Editors

Each year, Austin-area residents come together and make their way to the Austin Trail of Lights, a community-wide celebration and local tradition. What began in 1965 as a small gathering dubbed "Yule Fest" now annually transforms Zilker Park into a winter wonderland visited by nearly half a million people. Guests walking through the gates are met by a collection of trees and light displays bedecked with over a million shimmering bulbs, a massive Christmas tree, and a ferris wheel that rewards riders of all ages with stunning views of the downtown skyline. They can also warm up chilly hands at the ever-popular Yule Log, which blazes under the careful eye of the Austin Fire Department. And if visitors build up an appetite after strolling the over one-mile circuit of wintry displays, they can extinguish hunger pangs by patronizing local restaurants, caterers, and food trucks that will be on hand for the festivities.
