Everyone knows about the fabulous Trail of Lights at Austin's Zilker Parks, but what about other cities in Central Texas? They must have displays as well. We had heard rumours that Marble Falls had a pretty keen Trail of Lights display, so yesterday evening we hopped in the car and drove over the hills and through the woods to check it out. It is located in a park right on the lake and is free - although they DO appreciate it when you leave them donations. The nice thing about this display is that the crowds are SO much smaller and you can wander around without running into people. I forgot my camera, but I did have the phone camera, and here are some of the photos from the trail:
Pretty nice show for a little town like Marble Falls. It is open from 6:00 pm to 10:00pm from November 21, 2008 through January 3, 2009 in case you want to check it out. I really enjoyed how it was placed right next to the lake. After taking the stroll through the trail of lights, we stopped off at the Blue Bonnet cafe - A Marble Falls staple since 1929 - for dinner. They have some pretty decent food and the pies are quite tasty! It is really all about the dessert, you know.
