One lucky winner will be invited to flip the switch, turning on the front entry lights and opening the Austin Trail of Lights to the public for the first time of the season.
This night’s general admission is free and open to the public, and will include a wide variety of special programming!
The official first night at the Trail begins with a ceremonial flipping of the switch by Austin ISD students lead by City Officials. AISD 3rd-5th grade students from across the city get their creative juices flowing with their entries in our Austin Trail of Lights Holiday Writing Contest, benefitting the Trail of Lights Foundation and H-E-B’s Read 3 program. Students are asked to imagine they have a superpower and write an essay describing how they would use their power.
