Walkway of Lights reflects off of Lake Marble Falls with a festive sheen of 2 million lights in 380 luminescent Christmas decorations along Lake Marble Falls.

The display is free (though donations are appreciated) and open 6-10 p.m. nightly from Nov. 20 through Jan. 2, weather permitting, at Lakeside Park, 307 Buena Vista Drive in Marble Falls. Organizers will flip the switch to the display at 6 p.m. Nov. 20 following the Marble Falls Christmas Light-up Parade, which begins at 5:30 p.m. on Main Street.

Things will be a little different this year due to regulations put in place to slow the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. Improvements to Lakeside Park will make social distancing much easier along paved trails over a greater distance than it has been in previous years.

“Just space out and walk your way through it with distance between you and the next family,” said Jarrod Metzgar, executive director of the Marble Falls/Lake LBJ Chamber of Commerce. “We just need the community’s help in staying safe.”

Ice skating will return this year, with a temporary rink of real ice to be set up for six weeks next door to Walkway of Lights. Admission is $12 for ages 13 and above for one hour and $10 for 12 and under for one hour, which includes skates.

Vendors will be on hand selling snacks, hot chocolate, hot apple cider, and more.

This year's Walkway of Lights is dedicated to the late John Kemper, the owner of the Blue Bonnet Cafe and a storied community leader who passed away in May.

“We’re sad but excited to be able to honor (John Kemper) and dedicate this year’s Walkway of Lights to his memory and all that he’s done for this community and all that he’s done for Walkway of Lights,” Metzgar said.
