CLICK HERE for the schedule for Trail of Lights including hosts, entertainment and other special events!


As there is very limited parking in the EmilyAnn lot, almost all parking for Trail of Lights will be next door at Wimberley High School and Danforth Middle School.

If you have a government issue handicap permit or need to drop off closer to the entrance at EmilyAnn, you may pull into the EmilyAnn and proceed down the lighted driveway. Close to the entrance there will be a volunteer to help direct you to the handicap parking or allow you to drop off passengers. After dropping off, you will need to proceed to the designated parking at the high school and middle school. There is a lighted, concrete walkway from the high school to the EmilyAnn grounds.


Come join us for our 2021 Trail of Lights! Our trail is a walking trail through approximately 8 acres of lighted exhibits. Most nights feature live entertainment on the stage next to our yule log where guests can enjoy complimentary marshmallows and hot chocolate. Santa Claus in in his house most nights and princesses will be visiting as well. There will also be several special event nights throughout the run of the trail. During our 3rd Annual Chocolate Night on December 11th, guests can purchase a ticket to taste 10 samples of delectable chocolate from various vendors.

The EmilyAnn's Trail of Lights is free to attend; however, donations are graciously accepted at several donation stations at the entrance and throughout the grounds. Guests can also support the EmilyAnn by purchasing an array of fun light-up toys and yummy concessions. All proceeds from donation stations, concessions, stores, and special events benefit the EmilyAnn.


Alcohol, pets, and firearms are NOT allowed on the EmilyAnn grounds. Smoking is permitted in designated areas only. Service animals are permitted.


Any changes at Trail of Lights due to weather will be posted here on this web site. In general the trail will remain open with the lights on when it is raining unless the conditions become dangerous or there is a forecast for heavy rain. Some services may be limited in the event of light rain (e.g. concessions, Santa, princesses, entertainment). The train is not able to run in any type of rain.


Come have dinner at the Trail! Our concession stand offers many options including: hot dogs (plain, chili/cheese), frito pie, bottled water, smores, marshmallows, hot cocoa, and more!


Light your way through the Trail of Lights!! Our entrance store offers a great selection of light-up accessories and toys for all ages to help you look as festive as the exhibits! Prices range from $3-$20.


Admission is free but donations are greatly appreciated! We accept cash, check and credit card donations. If you would like to use a credit card to make a donation, please come to the front store tent. Cash is accepted at all locations/activities (train, concessions and store). Credit cards are accepted at concessions and the store. If you need to purchase train tickets with a credit card, please come to the front store tent.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please send a text to 512-847-6969 or an email to rebecca@emilyann.org.
