From trekking down to Trail of Lights to enjoying a sip of hot chocolate at Mozart’s Coffee Roaster’s light show – Austin, Texas has plenty of ways to make the most of the holiday season.

Here are some of the ways to bring the holiday spirit in Austin to you and your loved ones.

Trail of Lights

Trail of Lights Foundation is proud to sponsor Austin’s largest holiday tradition and 2nd largest event in the city. With more than 2 million lights and 40 displays, the event has something different for everyone. Special events include live performances from local groups and performers, a marketplace, and over 30 different food trucks. Specialty nights also take place throughout the month, each offering a unique experience.

Running from December 10th to the 23rd, the event is free almost half of its nights and runs from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Mozart’s Christmas Light Show

Each year at Mozart’s Coffee Roasters, over one million lights are set up on its deck for a special Christmas light show. New this year is the addition of the Cobalt Blue Piano, which will be played every night by a pianist. At the entrance will be a German Market in the parking lot serving warm treats for guests.

Admission is free and the show runs each day from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. midnight until January 2nd, 2019. Spots are on a first come, first serve basis – so be sure to get to the show early for a good view.

The Nutcracker at Ballet Austin

Bringing some grace to the Holiday season is Ballet Austin’s annual production of The Nutcracker. The performance features hundreds of dancers, gorgeous sets and costumes, and a live score performed by the Austin Symphony Orchestra. The story follows young heroine Clara as she conquers her fears and brings her dreams to life.

Performances of The Nutcracker run until December 23rd, with tickets ranging in price according to seat location.
