At the very end of the Trail of Lights (another very fun Austin tradition) is a huge Christmas tree created from long strings of Christmas lights. The center is a communication tower the rest of the year, but for Christmas the lights are strung from it's very top to a circle of telephone poles. It is visible from miles away.
Inside the center of the "tree" kids of all ages twirl around and around. The only thing missing is music. More pictures of the cutest Christmas elf soon.
