Featuring over two million lights, the Walkway of Lights located in Marble Falls, Texas, is a season-long holiday extravaganza. Walk the lighted pathway along beautiful Lake Marble Falls featuring holiday-themed, whimsical and patriotic light features and sculptures.


Johnson City, Texas comes vibrantly alive during this event which includes a collection of fun activities for the young and not-so-young. The hallmark of this event is the opening night (Friday after Thanksgiving) lighting of the Blanco County Courthouse in Johnson City with 100,000+ white lights to celebrate the holiday season (don't worry, no nails or screws are used to secure the lights on this beautiful Courthouse building.) The entire Courthouse is draped in lights, from the ground to the special effects lighting of the dome in a red color. Surrounding trees are lit with complementary red lights, producing a magnificent spectacle.

Even the inside of the Courthouse is decorated with a traditional Christmas tree and lots of hallway greenery and decorations. Nearby, the local Pedernales Electric Co-op headquarters won't be outdone. An entire block of magnificent old oak trees strung with 1+ million white lights covering the entire canopy of each tree plus white trunks, along with the stately two story PEC building, are simply brilliant

The small but quaint downtown Johnson City Memorial Park (about a half block area on Main Street) is stuffed with the most colorful lighted trees, figures, and presentations that are eye-catching in their own right, as they sparkle in a variety of decorative and vibrant colors. Almost every business building and many homes participate in the lighting adventure.
