Austin has landed on yet another list — but it needs your help to take it to the top. The Trail of Lights at Zilker Park is one of the contenders in USA Today's 10Best Reader's Choice poll for "Best Public Lights Display."
In a face-off for the most electric holiday spirit, 20 different lights displays from around the U.S. are competing for the title of best in the country.
Other Texas challengers include Moody Gardens in Galveston and the Houston Zoo. Nationally, the Trail of Lights is facing off against Clifton Mill in Ohio, the Louisville Mega Cavern in Kentucky and downtown St. Augustine, Florida, among others.
Considering the Trail of Lights is celebrating its 50th year this season, it's only fitting that we give it the gift of a championship for the holidays. The deadline to vote for this Austin tradition is noon on Monday, December 15. Participants can vote once a day until the deadline.
