The Trail of Lights exists as an authentically Austin community celebration. Our goal is to bring the joy of the holiday season to as many Austinites as possible. The STARS at the Trail program was created to ensure that those people in our community, who may not otherwise have the opportunity, are given a magical holiday experience tailored exclusively for them.
