KVUE — Austin’s beloved Trail of Lights will again be a drive-thru holiday event, organizers announced Thursday, October 7.

The tradition features 2 million lights, 70 displays and lighted tunnels, and 90 lighted trees. The event is held from 5:45-10 pm each day.

Tickets are now on sale for the 57th annual Zilker Park event, which will run from November 27 through December 31. Tickets give drivers a vehicle pass. As you purchase your ticket, you sign up for a time slot on the given day. Tickets range from $35 to $65, depending on the time slot picked.

The dash pass allows families to get into the trail before 7 pm and comes with a box of festive cookies and bottled water. The general admission car passes are for 7 pm, 8 pm, 9 pm, and 9:45 pm.

Each ticket pays for a passenger vehicle with up to nine passengers. If the car has more than nine seats or is more than 20 feet in length, two passes must be purchased.
