 - A lack of funding and sponsorship is turning the lights off on the city's 46-year-old Trail of Lights festival.

"We are deeply disappointed that we will not be able to hold the Trail of Lights event this year, but are ready to move forward on planning and fundraising for the 2012 Trail of Lights Austin," said Trail of Lights organizer Amy Vercruysse in a press release.

Instead of the fencing and build-out scheduled to start Wednesday for the event, organizers said they were forced to nix the $1 million project altogether.

 "The return of Trail of Lights in 2011 depended on community and business sponsorship contributions to make the event possible," read the release. "Despite considerable effort by the event's sponsorship and management team, a pre-event milestone to reach $250,000 in cash contributions prior to Nov. 2 has not been achieved."

Yes, the Zilker Tree Lighting is still on...The tree can be seen for miles as it signals the start of the holiday season when it is lit the first Sunday in December at 6 p.m. and stays lit until midnight every night until the end of the year.

In addition to the tree, Austin HolidayFest 2011 is also around this holiday season. Organizers said it will provide a free, family-friendly holiday event in December.


It will run from Dec. 4 to Dec. 11 at Zilker Park, kicking off with the tree lighting. Austin HolidayFest will feature the annual Holiday Tree lighting custom, along with Santa's House and food and novelty vendors

The Trail of Lights is back

The Trail of Lights Festival  2011 is gearing up to light up Zilker Park this year, Dec 9-18th. Things will be different from the past, besides the short run dates. It will cost $5 a head, with children 10 and under getting in free.  Here's what $5 brings you: The returning festival will host 35 lighted holiday-themed displays from 6–10 p.m. each night. Along with the displays, the festival boasts many family-friendly events such as concerts, new versions of traditional exhibits, carolers, flash mobs, a Circle of Charities and a community stage featuring choirs and choruses, dance troupes and children’s performance groups. One of the trail’s new additions is the ImageCraft Exhibits–sponsored Santa’s Pavilion, an enhanced version of the Santa’s House exhibit featuring a stage where children can meet Santa and watch him from the trail. Also new for 2011 is the Austin Trailer Food Court. “Austin is well-known for its trailer food scene, so we’re tapping into those vendors to see if they want to vend on-site,” said  Amy Vercruysse, Trail of Lights executive co-producer and spokeswoman. “Families have the option to have a dinner on-site at the trail of lights, where that option had been pretty limited in the past.”  Full story Will you go?
