BUDA, TX – A holiday tradition in Buda is just around the corner. The City is gearing up for the 12th Annual Trail of Lights event.
As with all City events in 2020, things will look a little different this year. In an effort to limit the gathering of large crowds and to keep staff safe, the city is hosting a drive-thru experience for this year’s Trail of Lights!
Residents will get to experience all of the fun displays and lights from the safety of your vehicle.
12th Annual Trail of Lights December 5 & 6, 10-13, 17-20
6:00 PM – 10:00 PM • Historic Stagecoach Park
The route begins on Hawk Lane at the entrance to Stagecoach Park & Visitor’s Center and winds its way around to Loop Street where motorists will exit back on to Main Street.
The map below shows the flow of traffic. Displays may not line the entire route. To ensure safe entry into the park, traffic will only be allowed to enter from the westbound lanes of Main. Eastbound traffic will not have a turning lane into the park. Buda PD will be on hand to direct traffic.
.Information for Display Setup & Sponsors
The entire duration of the Trail is drive-thru only so sponsors are asked to please be mindful of that when planning a display.
If a business and/or organization would like to have a display this year, they should read the details below and register by November 18. Set up will end on November 22nd.
There will be NO exceptions for set-up extensions this year. All displays not in place by November 22 will lose their spot on the Trail and be replaced. Once a display sponsors’ application is received and reviewed, Staff will notify them of their placement.
- Display space is FREE and electricity is provided (via one extension cord)
- Spaces are approximately 20’ X 20’. Please note: decorations must be sturdy enough to withstand changeable outdoor weather which may include strong winds and rain.
- Since one electrical plug is provided (extension cord), it is required that you use LED lights for the display. This will allow you to have up to 2,500 individual lights plugged-in depending upon display configuration and products used.
- The city strongly encourages sponsors to have as many lights as possible in their display, and they reserve the right to require more lights to be added to a display. Participants not cooperating with event rules will be required to remove their displays.
