Mark your calendars for Dec. 10-23, according to an email from organizers. The Zilker Tree lighting, which is as good a time to kick off the holiday season as any, is slated for Nov. 27. The Trail of Lights Fun Run is scheduled for Dec. 3, and a “Night Lights Preview Party” will be held on the eve of the trail’s opening.

Tickets go on sale in early November, according to the email. Get more info at austintrailoflights.org.
