When Highland Lakes towns light up the night for Christmas, you can go on a holiday road trip to a different community every weekend. Mix, match, and combine depending on your location. You can even start during the day for unique shopping opportunities in downtown Burnet, Marble Falls, Llano, and Johnson City.

Check out other holiday activities, including live music, parades, and snow days, to add even more to your itinerary.

Walkway of Lights

Marble Falls

More than 2 million lights brighten Lakeside Park, 306 Buena Vista Drive, from 6-10 p.m. daily (weather permitting). If the display is closing because of rain, the call will be made by 3 p.m. that day. Concessions will be available, and Santa will pose for photos every Friday and Saturday night. Paths are paved and ADA-accessible. Entrance is free, but donations are welcome.

Nov. 25-Jan. 1

Starry, Starry Nights


Badu Park, 300 Legion Drive, glows on land and water from 6-9 p.m. each day as the lights from static and moving holiday displays reflect off of the Llano River. Visitors can stroll while sipping hot chocolate.

Lights Spectacular

Johnson City

Lights Spectacular kicks off on Nov. 25 with fireworks, food and drink booths, and a street dance by the courthouse, 101 E. Pecan Drive. The Antique Tractor Club will provide rides from the courthouse display to the Pedernales Electric Cooperative’s headquarters, 201 S. Avenue F, where the trees will twinkle in blue and white. Combined, more than 2 million lights brighten the Johnson City display.

Trail of Lights


Three light displays combine for a true Trail of Lights. Start at any of the locations, which are at east end of Wallace Riddell Park on Texas 29 East at Rhomberg, the Burnet County Courthouse square, and Hamilton Creek Park at Texas 29 West just past the intersection with U.S. 281. The courthouse display includes a beautifully lighted and decorated Christmas tree at the east entrance.

Christmas by the Highway

Granite Shoals

The city added about 10 light structures this year to its annual display at the corner of H.A. Barnett Drive and RR 1431. The lights are on from 6-11:30 p.m. each night and again on school mornings from 6-7:30 a.m. for the kids attending class across the highway. More than a drive-by, guests are welcome to park and walk. Hay bales are set up for those who want to rest and admire the lights. Admission is free, but donations are welcome.
