Heroes Night

Tuesday, December 12, 2017 | 7-10pm

Presented by Texas Lottery


Join us as we honor veterans, active military, first responders (police, fire, EMS, etc.) and natural disaster relief workers at our annual Heroes Night on Tuesday, December 12 from 7-10pm at the Austin Trail of Lights. In light of many the disasters and tragedies which occurred this past year all over the nation, this year’s Heroes Nights provides an extra special opportunity to recognize, honor and thank the hundreds and thousands of military, first responders, natural disaster relief workers and veterans for their countless hours and dedication to our communities and nation. Guests will have the opportunity to create holiday letters to send to troops and other activities to pay tribute to first responders’ service.

Music performances by: 36th Infantry Division Band - Rock Before Dawn (8:00pm), Kidnapidy (9:15pm)

Additional performances by: Pivotal Academy of Dance (7:10pm),

Storytime: Storytime Patricia Vonne (7:30pm)
