Trail of Lights - Night Lights Preview Party

I am having my first Austin holiday show this Friday evening, December 9th, at the Trail of Lights Night Lights Preview Party!  I am honored to be one of the vendors selected by Edible Austin as a part of their maker's market from 6-10pm.  
If you are not familiar with the Trail of Lights, you are not from Austin! Our iconic holiday party is back with a vengeance and is bigger and better than ever!  If you want to beat the crowds, see live music by Greyhounds & Shiney Ribs, drink some fancy hot drinks, and snag a few presents, this event is for you!  Buy tickets now before they are all sold out!
What began as a small gathering in 1965 known as the "Yule Fest," a gift to the city of Austin from Austin Parks and Recreation Department, has now grown to be a community-wide celebration of the unique spirit and people that make Austin the place we love to call home. In the 52 years since the first Yule Log was lit, the Trail of Lights has expanded to more than 40 displays, 2 million lights and holiday activities that create countless memories. Each new display, community performance and lighted tunnel has added a new layer to the holiday tradition and brought us together more as a community. Today, the Trail of Lights is one of the three largest events in Austin and receives national accolades while remaining a deeply cherished local tradition. 
I hope to see you there!
