What is one to do on a chilly December night in Wimberly?
If you don’t want to miss the hottest action in town, you go see the annual Trail of Lights at the EmilyAnn Theater.
There were ninety seven exhibitors this year, all trying to outdo each other to win the coveted “Best in Show” title.
I’m not sure what could be more romantic than spending the evening holding hands and strolling through the six acres of lights together, listening to Christmas carols and children’s laughter. That sounds really cheesy and made-up, doesn’t it? Yes it does, but it’s true.
The display runs annually from the end of November through New Year’s Eve. Admission is free, but they are happy to take donations. All proceeds benefit the EmilyAnn theater.
Each display is unique. I think Frosty the Snowman was my favorite, although these geese gave me a smile. Who doesn’t like Christmas geese? Especially when they’re lit up from the inside. Kind of light a certain Scotsman I know after a few whiskeys.
This tree of lights is, quite literally, the high point. It sits atop the hill and can be seen for miles around. You can walk inside the light strands where we saw more than one person spinning in circles while looking up at the star on the point. I remembered how clumsy my feet can be and wisely decided to pass up the spinning, but it still looked like fun.
May you all have a happy new year filled with peace and adventure.
